Library Society: A big idea

663 views

Published on

Presentation for Manchester New Library Professionals Network's employability event, 20/07/2014. Setting up a Library Society at university was an idea I had in Autumn 2013, and I worked hard to make it happen. The challenges I faced helped me develop transferable skills including negotiation, leadership and teamwork, communication and many more.
