My Favourite Tipples are shared by Ciara Eastell, head of Libraries, Culture and Heritage for Devon County Council and president of the Society of Chief Librarians (SCL). She shares her favourite online resources in areas from online learning and digital inclusion to innovation and creativity.
With a day job in Devon, the SCL Presidency and a young family, my time is at a premium but it's essential that library leaders keep an eye on what's going on in the world around them.
The impact of libraries is so far reaching and their potential to support a wide range of broader policy objectives is so huge that I try to keep an eye on what's going on in a broad range of areas, including the broader digital scene, arts and culture, creativity, government departments and the broader political landscape.
As we come up to the general election, it will be interesting to see how politicians engage with libraries as an issue. Financial pressures facing library services and local authorities are understandably a hot topic but I hope that the public narrative around libraries also reflects the huge potential they have to support individuals and communities.
