Welsh Collaboration in Action: A Joint Event for Librarians Supporting HE in FE is being held this year on Tuesday 21st June 2016 at Cardiff and Vale College, City Centre Campus Dumballs Road Cardiff,

The morning session will include FE and HE updates from each institution and attendees should come prepared to give a short (no more than 5 minutes) update on developments in your college specifically related to your HE work.

After lunch there will be a tour of the campus including the library. The afternoon session will concentrate on different ways in which we can promote our libraries and our services.  The first session will be a workshop session showing you how to make a short instructional video to promote or explain your library (>1 minute) mixing live action – volunteer needed – with screencasting and other media. By the end of the session, we will have a completed video!  The second session will look at how good design can help all our promotions and will include how to design  subject guides using the Libguides software.

Throughout the day there will be plenty of time for networking and discussion.

There aren’t many parking spaces within the college. There is an unofficial car park on Dumballs road and there are some limited spaces along the road, but again they are pay and display.  We would recommend people make use of public transport.  The train station is only 5 minutes up the road.

To book a place please email Sally Skym sally.skym@southwales.ac.uk  by 10th June  and include any particular dietary requirements you may have.
