In the Cloud participated in a community outreach event during the week of 3-6 May 2017. It was a unique experience, with the opportunity to train librarians and give back as part of being the Librarian of the Year 2016. The training took place at the Mbazwana Public Library, and was attended by librarians from public libraries in the surrounding areas – 11 librarians in total. It was done in collaboration with University of Pretoria and the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf).
The following contributed to the success of the workshop:
- Susan Veldsman spoke to women in science.
- Zukie Hlwatika spoke to career choices.
- Ina Smith spoke about digital citizenship for librarians, and provided training in Gmail, Google Groups, Google Forms and WordPress.
