Events

Events are generally organised by the Mercian Staff Development Group, which has a remit to organise development and training events for regional library staff from member orgaisations. However, other events may be organised by other special interest groups, notably the Conference Group.  As we always welcome suggestions, if you’ve got an idea or request for a particular theme or event you’d like to see, please contact us and let us know more.

Eligibility

Events are normally only open to attendance by library staff coming from Mercian member organisations. Where attendance for staff from outside the Collaboration is available, it will be highlighted in the event description.
