This edition of Impact is another conference issue, this time featuring a number of the papers presented at this year’s CDG National Conference. The theme covered a huge range of ways to adapt to changing situations, either personally or as an organisation.
Katie Burn and Kirsty Whitehead impressed the whole room with their fearless approach to career development, and were deservedly awarded the prize for the best paper.
Other topics included the skills needed for a career in knowledge management, making the most of sector changes, improving your visibility, making your service useful to users, thinking big about opportunities and developing when times are tough.
Presentations from the day are available on the CDG Slideshare pages:

This issue also features a paper by Bev Woolfson, who describes the challenges of educating new library users. She writes from a legal library perspective, but the challenges are familiar to anyone who has been faced with educating and, hopefully, inspiring new members to make the best of the resources we provide.
Finally, this is my last issue as editor, and I am pleased to be handing over to Sharon Lawler, who has a wealth of experience in editing journals, and I am looking forward to reading Impact over the coming year.
