After a whirlwind end of year with library renovations and various training sessions (and Christmas) I didn’t get a chance to dedicate enough time to the blog. Well this year it’s all about Country Roads, content creation and helping you all create too. To kick off my content creation, you will see a new section in the top menu called “The Gooneburra Collection & Bush Tucker Garden”. Under this link you will find all the information and handouts I’ve created (so far) for our new Indigenous Collection.
A few dates for your calendars:
March 27 is the next project group meeting at Oakey Library. We are looking forward to hearing what you’ve all been up to and what you’ve planned for this year.
Each group still has some extra training sessions with me that are available whenever you’d like to book in with me. These sessions can be a recap on previous training topics:
- Heritage Trails Brochures
- Historypin (online historical photos)
- Flickr (photo sharing)
- Scanning Photos and Slides
- Writing Wikipedia articles
Or if you’d like to cover a new topic that would be fine too:
- Recording Oral History Interviews
- Transcribing Oral History Interview
- Creating Digital Stories
- Other (If I can work out how to do it, I’ll teach it)
Remember also, that on the last Friday of every month the Oakey Community Digital Hub, here at the Oakey Library, is open and available for your group working bees, if you just need some help or even if you just want a nice quiet place to work on your content.
