Slam the Boards! Reference Librarianship on the edge
[object Object],Great idea!  Let’s set aside one date each month and hit those boards hard so that we really make our presence felt. Instead of trying to compete with the answer boards, let’s use them. Let’s go online and answer the questions there ….. I cannot believe how many people are asking questions on answer boards instead of coming in to the library!  Surely there’s something we can do about this?
[object Object],[object Object]
So, on the 10 th  of September 2007 a small group of Librarians from around the globe went online to the various Answer Boards and pitted their skills against the myriad of questions they found there. For every question they answered they pointed the asker towards their local library’s resources and services.
A new kind of Reference Desk started operating amongst the jungle of Q&A sites on the world wide web
[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
What are these answer boards anyway? ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
There’s heaps more….. ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Tag   lines &   Marketing ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
So where will you find your local  public library? ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],In Australia? http:// www.nla.gov.au /apps/libraries
[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Let’s go back to answering that question ……
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So what do answer boards have in common with public libraries?
[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],What you thought………
[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Others said…….. ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Back to the beginning …… ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
 
The next Slam the Boards is Tuesday June 10 th  – why not go online and answer maybe just one question ……. You never know, it could just be Best Answer!
“ Oh the thinks you can think if only you try….”  (Dr Seuss)

Editor's Notes

  1. Good morning all and thankyou for being here today. As you can see from today’s agenda, my talk this morning is around the idea of what Answer Boards and Public Libraries have in common.
