Welcome to the 40th anniversary of UKSG!

The UKSG Annual Conference and Exhibition is a major event in the scholarly communications calendar which attracts over 900 delegates each year from around the world - librarians, publishers, content providers, consultants and intermediaries.  The conference combines high-quality plenary presentations, lightning talks and breakout sessions with entertaining social events and a major trade exhibition.  UKSG looks forward to its return to the Harrogate International Centre for the 2017 conference.  Explore what Harrogate has to offer.
