UKeiG Professional Development
Welcome to the professional development area of the UKeiG webpages. UKeiG’s extensive CPD programme is designed to meet the challenges facing information professionals in the digital workplace. Our courses offer practical, relevant, cost effective and high quality training.
Our development programme is open to members and non-members. Members pay 20% less than non-members.
In order to ensure the relevance of our courses and events the UKeiG Management Committee is keen to work with our members to focus on seven key strands for development:
⦁ Information retrieval/search
⦁ Scholarly communications/open access
⦁ Social media
⦁ Ethics, legal compliance, intellectual property
⦁ Digital literacy
⦁ e-information/e-industry, R&D
