Friday Snapshot from the Museum

November 14, 2014

A week or so ago the Museum here at  the MERL closed for refurbishment.  However, the Reading Room and Special Collections have been functioning as normal.  Although if I was honest I have been wasting a little time in the name of ‘work’

On Tuesday I popped into the Studio where a group of art students from a local school were painting some of the ‘not so rare’ items from our collections as part of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.  I didn’t record there wonderful achievements (not so polite perhaps at the time) but I will return and with their permission …

The next day I learned the delights of Gifmaker and look forward to practicing, and using it as a way to promote the library and the museum while it is closed.

I also learned about Tumblr, another den of procrastination if ever I saw one! Nonetheless it was a fun way to spend an hour in the working day.

So while I have no images to demonstrate any of the above probably a best strategy if my line manager is watching; here is a snapshot from the museum that was.

    It will be really exciting to see what the Museum looks like once it is all refurbished. Lovely to hear that the people on the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme are helping. Thank you for linking to PoCoLo 🙂 x
