Ever wondered who your peers really are? What makes them tick, who inspires them, what it their favourite ice cream flavour? As new GLAMR professionals there are so many interesting people within our own profession to meet.

To officially launch our new Instagram account, @ALIAnewgrads, we are bringing the GLAMR people to you! Introducing to you Humans of NLS8, affectionately called HONLS8. In the style of Humans of New York, the ALIA Students and New Graduates Group will be walking around the New Librarians Symposium taking pictures and asking NLS8 delegates, volunteers and presenters about their experience at the symposium. Also discovering their views on the GLAM industry in general and a quirky fact here and there. All photos will be posted (with permission) to our brand new @ALIAnewgrads Instagram account!

This mini project will run throughout NLS8 and will be a fantastic opportunity to learn about some new LIS faces plus give our HONLS8 their well deserved 15 minutes of Instagram fame! Not only this but it will provide a snapshot of NLS8 and GLAMR professionals today that we can look back on in another 80 years, #ALIA80.

To get involved with HONLS8 make sure to follow @ALIAnewgrads on Instagram and keep an eye out for #HONLS8. Plus for all your NLS8 shots don’t forget to find @ALIAnls and follow #NLS8!
