Writing: an inventory.

It occurred to me recently [actually – in April, and I have just retrieved and completed this draft…] that I didn’t have an inventory of things I had written over the past few years. The kind of thing one might put together if one was aiming for chartership, which I’m not, but that would be useful to remind myself when I next get hit by writers’ block. I haven’t included postings here, on the BIALL blog or on the SLA Europe blog.

So here it is. A good way to track my plans for world domination, sorry, career development from the MSc in 2005 to date.

February 2006: My MSc and why I started it, for BIALL’s newsletter, in response to an article in a previous edition about whether such a course was worth undertaking

August 2006: Conference writeup: I was awarded a bursary for BIALL’s Brighton meeting.

August 2007: “I wish I’d known that” – a collection of useful information for the perplexed (for example, the difference between the Family Law Journal and the Family Law journal, or that the Yellow book is actually purple). I had great fun collecting people’s anecdotes about misunderstandings and various howlers for this.

July 2008:  Conference writeup, again for BIALL’s newsletter, after BIALL awarded me a bursary to Conference in Dublin

July 2009:  SLA event reports on the SLA Europe blog and the B&F division journal

April 2010:  Trainees’ induction, for the SLA Legal Division newsletter

August 2010: Putting a survey together , another one for the BIALL newsletter

October 2010: Internet Librarian International conference presentation

I’m also putting together a webinar for the SLA’s First Five Years Council; and preparing a joint presentation for Online Information in December.
