No place like home

26 September, 2006

Well, we’re back in Sydney and brimming with ideas and enthusiasm we’ve brought back with us.

The conference was fun and stimulating, but the key thing now is to apply some of what we have learned here in Sydney. The key conclusions are:

- Our users’ habits are changing and we have to change to keep up, in terms of technology, environment and services
- Some academic libraries are getting ahead of us – we need to take advantage of their innovations and learn to innovate ourselves
- Small, low-cost changes can have a big impact on our service

Finally, after this tech-heavy week we feel the final word should go to Sten’s Mum, after hearing him describe Sydney eScholarship – “It was so much easier when you worked in a library”

Thanks for all your feedback,

Sarah, Sten and Tom
