Kim Tairi is the Associate Director, Information Management at Swinburne University. She loves her mobile. It has changed the way she works. Professional sharing and connecting is easier. Google her to find out more.

 

THINKING POINTS:

How could your library use photographs to promote library services, events and activities?Does your library Twitter account use Instaweather to provide a daily update?Do you have a permission form available so that when you take photographs of clients or events you have their agreement for those images to be used and shared online?How easy is it for clients to contribute digital photographs to your library collection (eg. local history)?Could you use photography in library programming (eg. how-to classes or competitions)?The Getty Museum celebrates the Instagram photographs taken by museum visitors by adding them to their Insta-Getty Pinterest board
