People networking online

Come and join us for the 5th in our highly popular virtual networking sessions. Built around an honest and open exchange of thoughts, in an informal and relaxed setting. These sessions are designed to appeal to staff working at all levels and sections of the academic libraries, with topics for discussion largely driven by attendees' interests and feedback following previous events. This will be the last networking session of 2021, but we will be back in January 2021 with the next one.

After comments and feedback from the last event, this time we will be talking about the emerging and essential skills or platforms we've been using to support our customers library needs. We'll be considering questions including:

  • What are the most important/useful staff skills needed working within the online library environment?
  • What technologies, platforms and approaches have been most successful in supporting students and academics?
  • How have we kept customers engaged, recognised and supported at distance?
  • And…what hasn’t worked as well as might have been expected?

Audience: All library staff

The event will be co-hosted by Claire Browne (Birmingham) and Gareth J Johnson (Mercian Collaboration). To ensure everyone has the opportunity to speak, places on this event will be limited. You can find advice on using and installing Zoom on the Collaboration's website.

For further information contact the Officer.
