CILIP SW AGM and Members' Day

Aimed at information and library workers in all sectors.  A mixture of presentations and practical exercises to develop leadership skills, regardless of positions held within an organisation.

The day will begin with the CILIP South West Member Network AGM.  We would encourage members to attend the AGM and help to shape the next 12 months of our activities. 


    Mentoring for CILIP Professional Registration

    This one day workshop will provide participants with a background to mentoring, a basic framework for conducting mentoring both long and short term. The focus of the event is to enable participants to develop effectively as mentors in the context of the CILIP professional development scheme.

    Mentor Training is a requisite for becoming a CILIP Mentor and this course is suitable for all CILIP members who have recently registered as CILIP mentors or are thinking of registering. Do come along and find out more about the mentoring scheme.

    Visit to the Britannia Royal Naval College Library

    Britannia Royal Naval College has been the site of officer training for the Royal Navy for over a century. Built upon the design of a public school it now delivers modern military training in an environment that honours the traditions and ethos of the Royal Navy. The College is an extremely imposing Edwardian building overlooking the town of Dartmouth.

    We have arranged a tour of the College Library, limited to 12 SW CILIP members.

    Cataloguing training

    CILIP SWMN & CILIP Cataloguing and Indexing Group invite you to a one day training course on cataloguing.

    This training is aimed at people who know nothing about cataloguing (or who have forgotten everything they once knew long ago). In a range of activities, you will find out what cataloguing is and why we do it; have a go at doing some basic cataloguing using the current international standard (RDA) and exchange format (MARC21); and leave with some resources you can use to keep up-to-date with your newly-gained cataloguing knowledge.
