ARLG Spring Conference 2019

Working smarter in a time of change

 The conference covers the following strands:

  • Information Literacy
  • UX, Marketing & Promotion
  • Resources (staffing & budgets)
  • Measuring Impact
  • Supporting Research
  • Collection Development and Management

We are pleased to offer an excellent selection of workshops which will be practical and will allow participants to engage with new content and to understand new and creative approaches to working smarter.  There will be a number of short presentations which will share with delegates the positives and negatives of working smarter in a time of change.  We are also offering a number of show and tell sessions which allow colleagues to share initiatives and work on no more than two slides followed by engagement with delegates to discuss work further in an informal setting.  Also included will be some lightening talks which provide an opportunity to share new, exciting and interesting projects from the last year with delegates.

Katherine Schopflin: Working through times of change: what can we learn from the demise of the media library sector?  In 2000 the UK Media Library sector was a vibrant and forward-looking professional grouping.
