We’re really pleased to share the programme of events that are coming up in 2018 and 2019. Please get the dates in your diary, and keep an eye out for more details.
Autumn Forum, 2018
In a break with tradition, there will be no summer residential conference this year, due in part to EAHIL and HLG conferences taking place. Instead there will be an autumn forum
When: Friday 2nd November 2018, London Mathematical Society
Theme: Stats and Stories for Impact
We all gather statistics, but could we be working a little smarter in our gathering, analysing and present the figures more imaginatively?
Increasingly numbers aren’t enough, we need to demonstrate the impact our services have on the organisations and individuals we support. How can we best gather those stories, and turn them into powerful testimonies of our value
Spring Forum 2019
When: Friday 8th March 2019, Royal Society of Medicine
Theme: Literacy in all its forms – digital, academic, information, health, and more
Improving literacy has always been at the core of a librarians role, but the definition of literacy is evolving all the time, not least with the new definition of Information Literacy released by CILIP in 2018. This spring forum is about all things literacy – information, health, digital and more.
Summer Residential 2019
When: Date to be confirmed (pencil in 27/28 June 2019). Teesside University
Theme: Failing to Succeed – how to learn from failure
Nobody likes to fail, but learning from our mistakes is one of the most powerful lessons. And learning from other people’s mistakes can be reassuring, rewarding and rich in benefits. The best leaders allow their team space to experiment, but this can also mean permission to fail – how can we help build resilience in ourselves and others to survive and thrive after failure?
