Join us for a FREE afternoon exploring how to progress through the ranks in librarianship. There will be a panel discussion featuring four information professionals who will share their career progression stories and answer any burning questions you may have about how they got to where they are. The panel will consist of three HE representatives and one FE representative. After a break, there will be the opportunity to participate in a workshop where you will identify any barriers to your progression and work together to come up with solutions to these problems.

There will be the opportunity to visit both the War Memorial Library and the Old Library at Queens’ College after the workshop has ended. The War Memorial Library is the College’s student library, situated in the Old Chapel building. The Old Library is a unique example of medieval library architecture and is possibly the oldest extant college library, dating from 1448. Its collections reflect the teachings of the College and have a particular strength in Renaissance humanism.

This event is presented by the CILIP Academic & Research Libraries Group (Eastern Division) and is an ideal opportunity to meet up with other library professionals in the Eastern area. 

All are welcome, however you must book your place in advance.
