InfoBuddy and inFundi function - SABC Media Libraries rewards & social media
The Manager of the SABC Media Libraries, Ilse Assmann, announced a new InfoBuddy internal reward system for the Media Libraries. An internal reward system is used to recognise excellence in the Media Libraries when it is not possible to recognise it by monetary means.
The previous reward system called InfoBuddy has evolved. A new committee has been formed to address the previous issues of subjectivity as well as buddies voting for buddies. A new name will possibly be selected, as well as a new way of rewarding internally. The issue of merit in the different departments will be looked at by looking at core job functions... (One of the possibilities being investigated.)
It is a work in progress. ..
See the history of InfoBuddy in the SABC Media Libraries here.
The SABC Media Libraries are constantly trying to expand their social media awareness and digital footprints. One of the ways flowed from the Knowledge Café called LibCafe of the previous year where we started an inFundi mentored programme.
Certain criteria were set when we set out to determine "What do we need to start using social media in the SABC Media Libraries?"
The person who achieved all the criteria for an inFundi in the Media Libraries is Vickey Steyn. She was congratulated on Friday for her efforts.
Manti Grobler, the facilitator of our Knowledge Café, sponsored the awards of the day. A big thank you to her!
The SABC Media Libraries also acknowledged the work done by our colleagues for being active on social media for the SABC Media Libraries.
