Curation is an important part of a librarian’s arsenal

Curation

The Storify was made in answer to Thing 14 of ANZ 23 Mobile Things: Curating with Pinterest, Tumblr and Scoop.It.

I am a big user of curation in my daily life, and the following points clarify the importance of curation.

The positives of using curation as a Information Specialist

– I am using curation on a daily basis to enhance my own professional development

– I keep up to date with the latest news, research and developments in my professional niche.

– I am able to connect with like-minded peers, as well as my community.

– I am increasing my social media presence in the niche that I would like to be known in.

– It is an activity that should not be neglected, but be part of compulsory duties of every day.

If neglected, it will banish you to the “nether regions of lost librarianship”, I’m sure!
