Conference 2023

More information is available on the Conference 2023: Delegates Information page.

If you have any questions, please email

This year's conference theme is: "Putting change into action: development, diversity and drive".
The theme was inspired largely by comments received on last year’s delegate feedback survey and is intended to appeal to staff working at all levels and sections of the library.

For the first time since 2019, the collaboration's annual conference will be hosted in-person by the University of Birmingham, at their city centre conference venue: THE EXCHANGE.  Click here for more venue information.

Delegate Cost and Eligibility
As in previous years, attendance at the conference is FREE OF CHARGE for representatives of member institutions and representatives of the event's corporate sponsors.

Corporate Sponsors
We now have a full cohort of sponsors so have no capacity available for further sponsor organisations to participate in this year's conference.
