I initially created this blog to keep my family and friends up-to-date with my experiences as I embarked upon a journey to the other side of the planet. From 2008 – 2009 I spent a year working with the National University of Laos in Vientiane, doing capacity building at the university’s library. The earliest entries in the blog chronicle that year. My work in Laos was graciously coordinated by the fantastic Professor Gary Gorman, in affiliation with the IFLA-ALP (International Federation of Library Association’s Action for development through Libraries Programme).
Two years later, I embarked again upon a new journey to the other side of the planet, and moved to Wellington, New Zealand.
In March 2016 I resigned from my faculty position as lecturer in Information Studies at the Open Polytechnic of New Zealand to take up a 12 month role as a library trainer with the St. Lucia Public Library.
I have since returned to New Zealand where I still work in libraries.
