What did I say, think and write in 2012?

NYE2013 57

Just in case you missed it, and let's face it you probably did, here is a listing.

With colleagues from UTS Library (S Schofield, B Tiffen) I co-authored the article “Change and Our Future at UTS Library: It's Not Just about Technology.” Australian Academic & Research Libraries  43 (1) , 32- 45.

I contributed the essay “Design as a Catalyst for UTS Library” for J. Schweitzer & J. Jakovich (eds.) Crowd-Share Innovation: Intensive Creative Collaborations, Freerange Press ( 2012) , Ch. 2: 114- 119.

For the ALIA Biennial Conference Sydney 2012 (http://conferences.alia.org.au/alia2012/), again with UTS colleagues (B Tiffen, J Vawdrey), I co-presented on Discovery for Academic Libraries.

Chapter/essay (about the future library) for forthcoming book on the 25th Anniversary of UTS edited by Paul Ashton & Debra Adelaide. (Publication title not known yet.)

Various conference, interviews, blog posts and seminar presentations including:

Design & our future library: more than spaces & technology

UTS future library: more than spaces & technology from Mal Booth

Presentation from December 2012 for a UTS CMOS seminar on organisational spaces http://www.cmos.uts.edu.au/about/index.html 

On becoming extraordinary

Becoming extraordinary from Mal Booth

I found this recently, so thought I'd share the slides from this online talk that I did for QUT's Information Studies Group (@qutisg) in mid-2012. There are no speaker's notes, but most of the ideas presented are pretty self-explanatory.

Thanks to Chris Gaul for his design work on these slides.
