About this blog…

My name is Paul.  I recently finished the Library and Information Services Advanced Diploma course at the Canberra Institute of Technology, Canberra, ACT, Australia.

This blog is about my atempts to search the internet to find what I need for working in the library profession.  It is also an attempt to bring together some information of interest to students of librarianship and information studies to help them get the information they need for their coursework.

If you haven’t used the National Library of Australia‘s Trove, you should have a look around in there.  Here is a link to my account at Trove – asearchinglibrarian



Copyright scares the living daylights out of me, probably because I have studied it (briefly) in my LIS course and knowing a bit about it makes you worry more than living in ignorance.

I have an interest in NOT breaching copyright, and so if you feel any work on this blog does breach the copyright or legal use, please let me know.
