5 reasons why you should follow our Instagram

Not only are we the best library blog on the planet, we are even dominating #socialmedia. You see, we’ve got Twitter and Facebook, but today is all about the #Insta!

  1. 1. We care about our #students, give #studytips and remind you referencing is kind of a big deal, with #consequences.
  2. 2. We use our degrees to teach you about native Australian flora such as #wattles being technically a fluorescence, not a flower!
  3. 3. We give some good #motivational advice to help you #succeed with your #studies.
  4. 4. We like #libraries and #librarians even when they aren’t our own and love we kept #oldschoollibrarian photos!
  5. 5. We love #books and #animals – and let’s be honest, if you don’t love those things, should we really be #friends?

In fact, one user said they’ve “been astonished by” our “awesome work for some time” and we are choosing to believe it’s not a bot due to our popularity over QUT Library Instagram!

P.S. We are just playing with you QUT Library, we actually love you guys and the playful rivalry we have together!


#LibraryShelfies on display at your campus library

#LibraryShelfie Gallery at the Logan campus library.

In case you missed it, we held a #libraryshelfie competition during the month of July.

Some of you submitted entries on Insta, many of you voted for your faves on the Library Blog, and all of you are sure to love what’s coming next.

Since we had so many awesome entries this year, we decided an online gallery of #libraryshelfies was not enough. We decided to bring the online, offline, and have a gallery of entries IRL.

Come along to your nearest Griffith University campus library and view the #libraryshelfie gallery.

The gallery will be on display until Friday 1 September.


And the winner of the #libraryshelfie comp is…

Winner of the Library Shelfie 2016 Competition

The #libraryshelfie comp is nearly done and dusted for the year. We had a bunch of creative entries, a handful of weekly winners and literally hundreds of votes for the overall winner.

Now, the only thing to do is announce the winner, right? But we can’t just go boom, this is the #libraryshelfie champ for 2016. We need build-up, fanfare, and speeches. No, just me?

So after nearly two weeks of voting, we have our prize winner. Without further ado, the winner of #libraryshelfie 2016 is @vitdoan2796.

Congratulations @vitdoan2796! Enjoy spending (or saving; no judgment) your massive $200 prepaid Visa Card. We all loved your #libraryshelfie entry. It was creative, clever and seriously cool!

Thanks to everyone who entered, voted, or simply watched from afar. You are all winners in our humble opinion. You win… our most heartfelt thanks.

The Library Shelfie competition has come to a close and we’ve selected six weekly winners. We’ve found the best of the best, the crème de la crème, the pick of the litter…

Who were these creative geniuses, what did they do and most importantly, what did they win? Well, the Library Shelfie entries judged to have the best content, belonged to these 6 students:

  • @mad_loui_bett
  • @dr_parlaphone
  • @khoamaiphuong
  • @vitdoan2797
  • @laurenelisestone
  • @ji_yeonii

These clever students simply took a selfie in a Griffith Library and shared it on Insta. Of course, it was slightly more complex than that (see the original competition post), but the end result was major cashola!

They scored themselves a cool $30 prepaid Visa Card just for doing what we all do every day; taking a selfie. They were just inspired enough to post it on Insta with the correct hashtags (while demonstrating artistic flair, obvs!).

Now, we hand over the judging to you. You get to decide the major prize winner. Who deserves the ultimate prize of a $200 prepaid Visa Card? Select your favourite entry below and click Vote. Read the rest of this entry »
