Have just created this blog as my first step on the cpd23 course. I’m completely new to blogging – not even sure what I will end up talking about but am hoping this course will steer me in the right direction (or perhaps drag me kicking and screaming out into the light).
I’m a cataloguing librarian at Cardiff University, and I have special responsibility for the cataloguing of items for the medical and healthcare libraries; this also includes a special project entitled the Human Genetics Historical Library http://www.genmedhist.info/HumanHistLib/
I am also a member of our (Library Service) Staff Development and Engagement Group, edit the SDEG newsletter and am always looking out for new aspects of training to bring to our staff.
I completed my MSc Econ in librarianship from Aberystwyth University a few years ago, and am comtemplating chartership at the moment – I think that embarking on cpd23 will maybe give me the push along that road…
However, I am looking forward to discovering all those relevant blogs out there, and seeing what my peers and fellow cpd23-ers are up to.
