GAELIC Show ‘n Tell Workshop held at the National Library (Pretoria) on 15 July 2009

The Gauteng and Environs Library Consortium (GAELIC) held its annual workshop on 15 July 2009. The aim of these workshops is to build optimal use of the Millennium Library System in the GAELIC member libraries.

 

Five staff members of the University of Pretoria, Department of Library Services attended this workshop and not only benefited from the presentations but also contributed by presenting papers.  We are very proud of the first time presenters who braved the podium with great professionalism.

 

Marietjie van der Westhuizen and Mart Muller shared their success story of communicating effectively with our clients.  The courtesy notices that are sent via e-mail to remind clients that library items are due shortly as well as the overdue e-mail and SMS hold notices are greatly valued by our clients. 

 

Lita Ferguson demonstrated the importance of the quality of the library database and the use of global updates to achieve this.  The audience found her comparison of serial subscription management with women amusing and relevant.

 

Kenny Moremi’s presentation on the presence of the UP library catalogue on Facebook was received with great interest.

 

Anette Lessing’s presentation focused on the set-up of Millennium web logs and the information that can be retrieved from these logs.  The logs show inter alia that traffic to the library catalogue is coming from Opera Mini – a mobile phone browser.  She also demonstrated how to trace and restrict access by robots (spider and crawlers).

 

The University of Pretoria was specifically thanked for its participation in this workshop.

 

The presentations will be made available on UPSpace.

Naudé's van Naudésnek ; bouers van die Naudésnekpas oos van Rhodes, en hul voor- en nageslag:

 Uit die Voorwoord:

Hierdie boek het ontstaan nadat oom Giep Goosen van Tzaneen en sy familie my op 5 Januarie 2008 besoek het.  Sowat twee weke na hul besoek het oom Giep my gevra of ek bereid sou wees om 'n boek met baie foto's oor sy ma se mense saam te stel.  Hy het die reëlings getref vir my besoek aan die Oos-Kaap gedurende April 2008 en dosyne telefoonoproepe gedoen om inligting en foto's by familielede aan te vra.  Tant Lena Naudé van Lady Grey het my bederf en al die ou Naudé-foto's wat sy besit, aan my beskikbaar gestel. Tydens my besoek aan die Rhodes-omgewing is ek behoorlik op die hande gedra.  Stephanus en Melani Naudé van die plaas "Dunley" het uit hul pad gegaan om my te versorg.    ............. baie baie dankie vir jul hulp en gasvryheid

Iets oor die samesteller:

Die samesteller, Faan Naudé, is 'n agter-agterkleinseun van Charel Naudé, nommer 3 in hierdie boek.

Faan het kort nadat hy gegradueer het, in 1973 by die Staandemag aangesluit waar hy gevorder het van luitenant tot kommandant.  In 1982 het hy by die Raad vir Geesteswentenskaplike Navorsing (RGN) aangesluit as hoofnavorser.  Gedurende die tyd wat hy by die RGN werksaam was, is hy bevorder tot assistent-direkteur en later adjunk-direkteur. Hy is tans verbonde aan die Universiteit van Pretoria, Departement Biblioteekdienste.

Sy belangstelling in sy afstamming het begin na die geboorte van sy seun, Jacob Petrus, genoem Peet, gebore 18 Mei 1984.  Aanvanklik het hy net sy eie lyn terug tot by die stamvader nagevors.  In die proses het hy al die Naudé inligting wat hy teëgekom het, aangeteken.  Later het hy begin om die hele familie na te vors en aan die begin van 2008 het hy oor 'n databasis van meer as 42 000 persone beskik.  Hierdie persone is of was gebore Naudé's of hul huweliksmaats of die kinders van Naudé-dogters.  Op daardie tydstip het hy reeds meer as 33 000 van hulle in  een stamboom gekoppel
