Join the Randomised Coffee Trial for New Professionals!

Calling all Library New Professionals!

This month, we’re launching another Randomised Coffee Trial for new professionals to meet and share information literacy experiences.

This is available for any current students or recent graduates of library courses, apprenticeships or anyone new to a library job (less than 5 years experience) in all library sectors.

What is a Randomised Coffee Trial?

A Randomised Coffee Trial is a way of meeting new people and networking in an informal way through a 1-1 or a small group. You’ll be matched with someone else from a different sector to arrange a virtual catch up at a time to suit you both. We’ll provide some ‘conversation starters’ and some guidance but you can discuss whatever you want – the point is to share experiences, views on information literacy and get to know each other better.

Why should I sign up?

If you’re new to the library profession, this is a perfect way of meeting others who are in the same boat as you. You can share experiences, learn about different sectors and receive support. People who have attended a Randomised Coffee Trial before have enjoyed meeting new people and have been able to share ideas and best practices that they can take back to their organisation.

You can sign up by filling in the Randomised Coffee Trial form by November 30th and we’ll let you know who your RCT partner is and how to take part at the beginning of December.

If you’d like to hear more about the upcoming events and projects by the ILG’s sub-committee for new professionals please sign up for our newsletter or contact us: ilgnewprof@googlemail.com.
