Events are generally organised by the Mercian's Special Interest Subgroups, with the Staff Development Group having a particular remit to deliver an annual programme of development events for member library’s staff.

Event Suggestions

We always welcome suggestions for themes or topics for future events. If you’ve got an idea or request for a particular theme or event you’d like to see, please contact us and tell us your thoughts.


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.
