To kick off the beginning of ALIA Library & Information Week and in keeping with this year's theme "Libraries: we find stuff", the NSW Library Technicians Group is holding another "TouringTechs" and inviting all who are interested to come and join them in viewing two of our city's spectacular recently renovated libraries on Saturday, 21st May:-
· The University of NSW Library - http://www.library.unsw.edu.au/
· The Royal Randwick Library - http://www.randwick.nsw.gov.au/A_sense_of_community/Library/index.aspx
For those who would like refreshments before commencing the first tour, they are meeting at 9.30am at the Blue Stone Café between E19 and C20 on the Uni campus map - see http://www.facilities.unsw.edu.au/Maps/pdf/Kensington_Accessibility_Map.pdf
The tour will commence at 10.00am at the Help Zone, Level 2 (entry level) of the UNSW Main Library, Upper Campus Building E21 (see map). The 10 floors of library, short listed for interior design for the Institute of Architects, incorporate high quality furnishings as well as funky items for the younger set.
After this, a 10-minute walk will then see them at The Royal Randwick Library for a tour of their $2.5 million new library refurbishment.
On this day they will also be celebrating ALIA National Library Technicians Day so all are invited to stay for lunch afterwards and enjoy the networking and camaraderie.
RSVP to Jennifer Dyer for inclusion in tour numbers (see below) by Thurs. 19th May 2011.
