By Kelly Hetherington, Repository Officer at University Library and Collections.
On Wednesday 11 May, the University Library and Collections Learning and Engagement Team invited staff from the rest of our vast department to come and learn about what they do on their team.
Seeing as my role involves so much computer work, I jumped at the chance to have a trip out for the following reasons:
- The session was held at the Oriental Museum – a lovely change of scene from home working / Bill Bryson Library office because it is full of fascinating artefacts.
- Our colleagues there regularly hold sessions for school children. This means they are fun, engaging, and lovely so I knew the session would be interesting and I’d learn something new.
- This was a session about ‘object centred engagement’ – we’d be able to touch real life old artefacts! (More on this later).
