About me

I am a Facilitator - National Capability -  with Services to Schools, National Library of New Zealand. In my previous role I had particular responsibility for school library collections. The single most important message I want to impart is that your school library collection is no longer contained by the 4 walls of your library or limited by the size of your budget.  Your collection is all the material you access -  digital, hard copy, from National Library's collections, your local public library, your own library ... it is all your collection - the question is ... how do you make it available and manageable?

    Kia ora Lisa and welcome to the VLN.

    I am part of the online team and we are here to support you and help you get the most out of the VLN community.

    I see you have joined some groups, maybe I could suggest some other groups to help you get the most out of the VLN.

    You might like to join the "Getting started on the VLN" group, here you will find a wealth of tips to help you get the most out of the VLN.

    If e learning is your passion, you might like to join this group too. /groups/profile/118255/enabling-elearning/

    Each fortnight we put together the e-learning round-up on the blog, it is well worth skimming through to see the latest discussions and links, [/blog/group/118255/all].

    Looking forward to working with you online.
