Society of Australian Genealogists Library

I have spent two days at the SAG library for my professional placement and I’m still feeling more like the work experience girl.  The system is so different to any I have ever encountered! My first day was spent on a whirlwind tour of two separate sites madly trying to take it all in and then today the lovely librarian set me loose to research my own family history as she believes the best way to learn the system is to experience it for yourself.  I didn’t find anything very exciting but have become slightly more familiar with what services and information the library provides. As a not for profit organization there are not that many employees but there is a veritable army of wonderful volunteers who give up their time to help those in need (me). Tomorrow I will be exposed to more administrative duties – helping out accessioning new resources-hope I’m not totally useless!
