PD opps for tertiary librarians #2

Having had a wonderful response of additional items from my Twitter PLN (Thanks Sarah Gallagher and Sally Pewhairangi) here is part 2 of professional development opportunities for tertiary librarians:


  • Learning 2.0 Modules – a compendium of learning modules provided by San Jose State University students under the guidance of Dr Michael Stephens.  Modules content includes: Twitter, Blogging, Cloud Storage, Online Meeting Tools and much much more
  • ANZ 23 Mobile Things – this course has finished, however the learning modules are still available online for self-directed learning
  • 23 Research Things @ Melbourne – an online learning programme for University of Melbourne staff.  The programme is open to non-staff, however support may not be offered.  See menu bar on right hand side for module content
  • LIANZA 5 minutes on … – self-directed modules on a variety of library topics tailored to Aotearoa New Zealand
  • Social Media for Health – self-directed training modules focused on medicine/health and social media


TWITTER: Hashtags and Lists

Use Twitter to build your PLN (Personal Learning Network).  Search hashtags (#) and lists.  You’ll need a Twitter account to access these lists.

  • #pubrarians – librarians who meet socially at a pub (There is Auckland and Palmerston North that I know of, probably more)
  • Librarians Who Rock created by Cath Sheard
  • NZ Libraries created by Sally Pewhairangi
  • Libconf created by ITI Conferences
  • Library by Matthew Ciszek (Twitter accounts in library and information science)
  • Library Folk Aus/NZ created by Kim Tairi


These posts will be a continuous work in progress – check back later for future updates! As always, if you have a suggestion to add, leave me a message below 🙂
