ALIA Sydney's upcoming event 'Shades of grey'

Shades of grey

Have you dealt with some tricky situations in the library where there was no black and white answer? Has someone challenged the inclusion of something in the library collection? Have you dealt with an unusual customer?

If you're interested in unpacking situations like these, developing strategies to address them and come up with solutions, then come along to ALIA Sydney's Shades of grey workshop!

6.00-7.45pm Thursday 4 October
Darug Room
Parramatta City Library
Civic Place, Parramatta

ALIA members $5 entry, non members $7 entry
Special guests include
  • Philip Anderson from Wyong Library who implemented a Gay, Lesbian, Bi and Transgendered collection
  • Public Library Managers including Linda Bathur from Waverley and Debbie Best from Parramatta who will be talking about their experiences handling tricky situations including managing the homeless users of the library, managing young people in the library and maintaining the public image of their organisation
Following presentations from our guests you will participate in a workshop to discuss the issues and brainstorm some ideas so that YOU can help inform the decisions that affect your library.

  1. Hi all, an update to this event- due to illness Debbie Best will be unable to present so we have Katherine Mitchell, Information Access Librarian from Parramatta presenting. Katherine has a lot of experience dealing with young people and will be talking about the issues they have faced.
