Marketing & Communications Group

The Marketing & Communications Group is one of the Collaboration's special interest group, approved at the March 2019 Directors Board meeting. As the name suggests, the group members have a particular interest in the marketing, promotion and reputational enhancement of academic libraries. Like most of the other SIGs, membership is representational and largely self-selected by individuals within membership organisations. The interim Chair is Stewart Sandilands (BCU), supported by a core organisational team. A formal launch of the group, and committee elections are expected to be held later in 2019.

The group’s activities, direction and contributions are overseen by the group’s Chair, as guided by input from the Mercian Collaboration Steering Group, and supported by the Development Officer. The group reports and is responsible to the Collaboration's Directors, via the Steering Group and Group Sponsor (Helen Curtis).

This group is currently under Steering Group Review (Nov '21).
