Collaboration and teamwork in libraries

Kendra Levine, the Research, Outreach and Web Services Librarian from the Institute of Transportation Studies Library, University of California Berkeley, has posted an excellent blog post about teamwork, collaboration and how librarians can make use of less formal collaborative opportunities. Her main point? We should be sharing what we are doing – even the minutia of our day-to-day work, more readily in order to make other librarians aware of possible collaborative opportunities. My favorite point in the whole post is

If you value the community, you need to be a part of it. Networks need nodes to have value, so be a good node!

Go ahead, read the whole post and then give some thought to what it is you share about your work and how you can do more sharing so that we can all get more opportunities to collaborate on our work!
