Timely event for library staff working in customer services and circulation

Circulation procedures and new LMS implementations seem to be a common theme amongst university libraries at the moment. This session will give people a chance to discuss policies and procedures with colleagues at other institutions and see how one institution has carried out their LMS implementation. This event is aimed at customer service managers, LMS teams and anyone who deals with circulation procedures.

The afternoon seminar will be in two halves.  In the first session we will be having a discussion around circulation reviews that are common prior to any change in LMS. Please come prepared to share your current practices on loan allowances, loan periods, fine policies and automatic renewals and any other circulation policies you would like information on from your colleagues. We will prepare a benchmarking document that will be distributed after the session.  The second session will build on the first by giving a real life case study of how Lincoln have recently implemented a new LMS and will discuss how they gathered feedback and implemented the system and are still driving change with their supplier.

Drinks and registration from 1.00-2.00 – bring your own lunch and take the opportunity to network with colleagues whilst eating it. Tea and biscuits will be provided. Optional tours can be arranged on the day if people are interested.
The session on circulation reviews and LMS implementations will run between 2.00 - 4.00

The seminar will be led by: Matt Cunningham, (Loughborough University), Lesley Thompson and Dave Masterson (University of Lincoln)
