  • Ten Minute Tips Libraries Have the answers Background The Ten minute Tips have been running for a while in Bournemouth Libraries. They aim to share hints and tips with staff and originally they focussed on IT and internet use. The focus changed last year after six members of staff underwent training on the Professional Pathway Programme which aims to transform library managers into Librarians. One of the sessions on enquiry skills ended with staff saying that they needed to practice the enquiry skills that they had learned so that they could improve upon what they had learned. Libraries Have the Answers is the result of that. The questions always test book based enquiry skills alongside electronic enquiry skills. It was a conscious choice to develop both skills together, use of books and electronic resources together is an essential part of what we do here in Bournemouth Libraries. There are things you won’t find that easily on the internet, that you can find in printed books (and vice versa) As they’ve developed we have tried to keep them focussed on real enquiries asked in libraries or to point out how they could be used in your library, e.g. using Times Digital Archive to find primary source material for history students.
