The RA training day went well this past Monday. It was great to see a room of about 19 library staff members eager to learn about readers’ advisory! In addition, we had a handful of staff from libraries throughout Nova Scotia, from Yarmouth to Cape Breton, attending our session.
I think the training went well, and all of the attendees appeared to find the session on the catalogue interesting. I was able to cover all of the content I was hoping to in 30 minutes (I tend to be energetic and talk a bit fast). However, it didn’t look like I lost anyone, and no one appeared bored or uninterested. Phew! My slides are a bit different from last year. I’m sorry there are no speaking notes to go along with these slides, but I don’t use notes, unless I’m uncomfortable and unfamiliar with the topic. However, as always, I’d love to hear your comments or questions!
