Discovery 16 – Lifelong learning

November 26, 2009 at 3:50 pm Leave a comment


Congratulations – you’ve finished this Discovery exercise before you even started! What you have been doing over the last few months, working through the 15 other Discovery exercises, is what lifelong learning is all about. You don’t always need to sit in a class and be taught by an ‘expert’. Hopefully you will have discovered that you have the skills, the time and the resources to explore new technologies, play with new ideas and programs, and to make connections with your work and/or personal life, without waiting until the training comes to you.

We all need to keep informed. It is very easy to get involved in the day-to-day running of a library, with issuing and returning books, shelving, meetings, running programs, troubleshooting, meetings, information desk work, collection development, heritage work, meetings, meetings and more.

In spite of all that work, we do need to stay up to date on what our customers are using, talking about, and asking us for help with. As libraries continue to evolve, we need to be informed to evolve with them.


We hope that you have also discovered a sense of play and fun that comes from learning, and from helping each other to learn.


You have one last task……continue the learning! Armed with the set of tools you have discovered through these exercises, you are now well equipped to stay up to date with new and emerging technologies and ideas in libraries and the wider world.

Take a moment to compose a blog post about your overall thoughts and feelings about the CityLibrariesLearning learning 2.0 program.

Don’t stop learning, and take the time each day to Discover, Play and Connect.
