  2. 2. Rediscovering Indigenous Languages https://indigenous.sl.nsw.gov.au/
  3. 3. You may work for different organisations, different team leaders and supervisors throughout your library career, but it’s important to remember …. You are the CEO of your own career. • You decide how much time and money you invest in your own learning and development. • You determine what skills gaps need to be filled. • Libraries support lifelong learning, and YOU are a life long learner as a library professional.

  5. 5. Dweck, C. (2006) Mindset: the new psychology of success “In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.”

  15. 15. If you have a career break to rear children, do not stress that you will somehow not have the correct skills when you re-join the workforce. The profession always needs thoughtful and tactful people with sound disciplinary knowledge about how to acquire, organise, preserve and retrieve information and tailor services to their community’s need. Do not beat yourself up because you are not reading trade literature or learning the latest tech while you are immersed in so much other non- professional learning. If you were in the swing of things once, if the profession is your passion, that will return in time. @libsmatter
  16. 16. "If you're creating things, you're doing things that have a high potential for failure, especially if you're doing things that haven't been done before. And you learn from those things. No matter how you cut it, you say, "Well, that didn't work," or, "Well, this didn't work," or "That was not the best idea." And you use that information that you've gotten which is experience… failure is another word for experience." George Lucas Beete, P. (2013, July 24).
