The Fifth CILIP CoFHE and UC&R Joint Conference takes place at Exeter University, 21-23 June 2010

The biennial CILIP CoFHE and UC&R Conference has become a significant date in the academic library professional’s diary. It provides the opportunity to share expertise, experience and knowledge in one of the most challenging and rapidly changing sectors of the profession. Next year’s conference theme will examine the key role that academic libraries and their staff play in both the learning cycle of the student and the wider demands of the institutions they serve.

Topics/themes will include:

•       the library’s role in Digital Britain
•       managing a service during recession
•       libraries as central to their institutions
