Hello, my name is Intern: Upskilling employees at the University of Adelaide Libraries

2017-07-18T09:39:01Z (GMT) by Catherine Marais Rani Thompson
In 2016, the University of Adelaide Libraries undertook an internal Internship Program to upskill existing employees of the library to learn the skills and roles within the area of Learning and Research Services. This presentation will explore how the Internship Program evolved and progressed, the challenges and victories faced by the participants, and the wide range of upskilling the program provided. We hope to convey how personal and professional development doesn’t have to be all about attending courses and filling in the required paperwork, but about fostering connections across departments and making friends in the process.
