Cellos and Bellows: librarians' tweetup #GLTU4

Glasgow Library Tweetups Pay Us a Visit

Assorted librarians gathered to visit the Whittaker Library at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and then the museum and newly refurbished library at the National Piping Centre, last Friday (18th May).  This was a joint effort organised by Anabel Marsh, with Karen McAulay at the Royal Conservatoire and James Beaton at the Piping Centre coordinating the visits to each venue.

Preceded by the James Clark lunchtime concert at the Royal Conservatoire, and rounded off by a meal at the Tryst, a congenial and informative visit was had by all.

The event has been blogged by Anabel Marsh - here, on the Glasgow Library Tweetups blog.  (There are pictures!) Anabel has also compiled a Storify story, to collate participant feedback - here

James Beaton, piping librarian and oral history project manager ('Noting the Tradition') at the National Piping Centre, contributed his own limerick report on the event:-

The blogs are quite full of it
James and Karen's big hit
They came, saw our books
And our most learned nooks
And went off and thought for a bit.
