The Skills Exchange

I mentioned the Skills Exchange on-line forum previously and it is now celebrating passing a milestone .

The new online community where librarians and information workers can meet to exchange ideas now has over 100 registered users - well over actually - 121 at the latest count, and growing all the time. This should now be a user-base that can be of genuine use to each other in the exchange of knowledge and experience in the LIS sector.

It is cross-sectoral in its make-up, with representatives from the academic, public and commercial sector. This can become a valuable feature of The Skills Exchange, as a fresh perspective on tackling similar issues can often lead to new and innovative thinking.

I wish the Skills Exchange all the best in the future and recommend it to all librarians in the region.
