Great expectations: what do students want and how do we deliver?
Bookings are now open for the first CILIP ARLG Conference.
Newcastle University, 25-27 June 2012
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. The two groups have always worked well together and have always been closely aligned. Now. of course, CoFHE and UC&R have formally combined to form the Academic and Research Libraries Group (ARLG), making this sixth joint study conference all the more relevant.
The conference 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. There will be wide ranging plenary sessions from the professions’ leaders and influential voices:
* John Hogan, Registrar at Newcastle University
* Tony Durcan, Director of Culture, Libraries and Lifelong Learning at Newcastle City Council
Another popular feature of the joint study conference is the practitioner led workshops which all delegates are encouraged to take part in. This year we have over thirty such workshops for delegates to choose from, under the headings:
* Student Experience
* Skilling the workforce for the future
* Collaboration and partnership
* Expectations in a Digital World
* Measuring Impact and Quality
