Birr Reading challenge
In January 2009, the boys from 6th Class from St. Brendan’s National School visited Birr Library and felt that all the books were pink and there were no boy’s books. It was agreed that, with the help of the boys a new space would be created in the library for boys books.
This course is aimed at information professionals who have to organise and categorise information as part of their work. This may mean constructing a taxonomy for materials on an institutional repository, development of a file plan for records management or creation of a navigable structure for a website or intranet. The one-day course will use different types of classification system and will be based on exercises to practice and develop skills for creating classification systems.
By the end of this course participants will have:
John Lonergan (former governor of Mountjoy Prison), Declan Hughes (best-selling crime novelist) and former RTÉ newsreader Anne Doyle are among those confirmed to speak at this year’s Public Libraries’ Section conference.
