One of my new years resolutions was to remember to contribute to the Oxford libraries graduate trainees’ blog. When I started brainstorming ideas for blog posts I found that some of the things I was coming up with, although library-related, weren’t really directly related to the trainee programme. So I decided to start my own blog for such musings and this is the result.
Why ‘The Library Cauldron’? I wanted to make it obvious I would be writing about libraries, so having ‘library’ in the title seemed a good idea. I went for ‘cauldron’ because I hope to write about lots of different things here and for this blog to be a metaphorical mixing pot of my ideas.
Not being sure where to start with setting up my own blog I did a bit of searching and found a ‘How to: Set up a blog’ guide by Ned Potter on the LIS New Professionals Network and his associated blog post on the wikiman. I found these extremely helpful in getting me started, so thank you Ned!
Welcome to The Library Cauldron!
