With the collections assessments coming up, and the orientation workshops just a few days away, we would like to profile the people in the collections. The people that are hard at work, making sure that our precious collections are in the best state. The people that will be conducting the assessments and ensuring they are a success.

The profiles will be published as articles on the NSCF mailing list and website, and shared on all social media platforms.

We want to know:

  • What’s your name and position, at what institution?
  • What does your day-to-day look like?
  • What role do you play in the securing of collections?
  • What makes collections important/valuable, to you?
  • What has been your biggest learning since the beginning of the collection management course up until now (if you have been attending the course or following it)?
  • What have you learnt about yourself?
  • How does the knowledge that you have gained impact on your future and goals, and those of your institution?
  • What are you most looking forward to with the upcoming collections assessments?
  • What does the Iqoqwana phenomenon mean to you, personally?
  • What challenges are you anticipating to be met with, during the collections assessments process?
  • What is that one specific thing or activity that you are doing to prepare yourself?
  • What message do you have for colleagues in the NSCF Network?

How to participate:
Answer the questions above (you don’t have to answer all of them) and send them together with a picture of you working in the collection.
