Happy New Year fellow ARLG members

Posted By Jackie Oliver, 10 January 2018
Hello everyone! A very happy 2018 to all ARLG members. It looks like it is going to be a busy year as we all get to grips with the new YM platform and all the fabulous functionality that comes with it. We hope that this will pull us forward into the 21st century and offer us a versatile and flexible tool that we can use creatively to share information and to communicate / collaborate with our members. So what's new so far? ARLG are looking at InformZ which is the new tool to replace "Communicator". This has a modern interface and will offer groups and regional networks the ability to get communications out to the wider membership. So far it looks fairly easy to use so ARLG are hoping to get a first bulletin out in the next few weeks. The national ARLG committee are planning their next committee meeting and are bravely (or foolishly) going to attempt a virtual meeting, eek! We will see how that works in practice. Lots of work for the committee in 2018 and hopefully we will be able to offer some CPD events of interest right across our membership. Jackie (Honorary Secretary - National ARLG committee)

Welcome to ARLG

Posted By Jackie Oliver, 28 November 2017
Hello everyone, Welcome to the Academic and Research Libraries Group (ARLG). We are a well established SIG within CILIP and we have a great geographical representation across the UK. The current committee is newly established in 2017 taking over at a key point in CILIP's development as they roll out the Your Membership (YM) platform. The national ARLG committee are keen to raise our profile professionally and to engage with our membership across HE, FE and in research. We are trying to provide clear and timely communication for members that comes with a transparency that will encourage members to engage with us at either national or regional level and across the sectors we represent as a SIG. If you have any suggestions for events or for CPD that would be of benefit to members don't hesitate to get in touch with us. You can also reach the national officers directly at: chairarlg@cilip.org.uk secretaryarlg@cilip.org.uk treasurerarlg@cilip.org.uk. Check our postings on our group page to link to our group documentation on our shared Google Drive. Jackie (ARLG Secretary - National Committee)
