Reflective practices in library settings have personal, professional, and institutional benefits. Reflection fosters learning from significant events and enables more effective planning for the future. Individual staff members and teams are able to contribute to -- and help maintain -- positive change. However, barriers including lack of time, skill, and experience may prevent library workers and their managers from making the most of regular reflective practice. Lyndelle and Rowena will present reflection as a theoretical concept and provide exemplar models of practice suitable for libraries, including library teams. We will also present the case study of USQ Library’s use of reflective practice as a tool for storytelling and demonstrating impact through the framework of the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs). A template for reflection will be provided.
