For a few tours more
Posted by gazjjohnson on 4 September, 2008
Toured a load of librarians around yesterday on behalf of UCRG and later this afternoon will be showing round a second batch on behalf of SCONUL. As Louise said yesterday, it’s always nice showing librarians around the building as they can really appreciate the effort that went into designing it. They also ask the most penetrating of questions as well, so the tours really keep you on your toes in terms of what goes on inside the DWL walls.
Personally I love doing these sort of things, but then I’m a showman at heart. It’s also great to mix with one’s peers without having to tromp off to a conference in the back of beyond for three days, as it’s safe to say the information flow during these things is bidirectional – there’s always something new that these folks can share with us.
