Lunch is included and refreshments will be served throughout the event.

What is the theme?

The theme of the event is “Little things mean a lot: adding value to the user experience”. The aim is to share tips, techniques and strategies that librarians can easily integrate into their own practice. The organisers would welcome examples of organisations and individuals being responsive, agile and flexible, even if resources (be they people, space, time or equipment) are contracting. They would also like to encourage examples of small or inexpensive innovations that have made a positive impact on the user experience. Anyone can share great ideas they’ve used in their library, ask important questions or simply sign up to take part in learning conversations.

How does it work?

Attendees are asked to consider delivering a presentation, up to 10 minutes in length, on an innovative topic in line with the theme. The number of speakers will be limited so please get your application in early if you would like to do this. Alternatively, you are welcome to attend as an enthusiastic audience member who is happy to join in the discussions, share ideas and develop learning opportunities.
