Event Summary

The theme for our 2018 One Day Conference is “Doing More with Less”.  More and more, we hear that all members of the knowledge community are expected to do more with less – in terms of creative allocation of budgets; staff numbers, recruitment and training; skills, technologies, and even natural resources.

Why you should attend

We are bringing together librarians, publishers, researchers and providers of related technology and services, to share stories and best practice around “doing more with less”; our programme includes speakers from 5 countries, so delegates will be able to learn from a wide range of perspectives, experiences and contextual challenges (what would happen to your budget if your university stopped charging student fees?).

Learning objectives

You will learn about methodologies to help more efficiently plan and test new ideas; strategies for providing access after big deal cancellations; technologies that can help libraries surface their content and services more effectively; the day will close with a debate about whether library schools and other professional development opportunities are keeping pace with the changes we face as we “do more with less”.

Our provisional programme is below.  We are still confirming some speakers and will update this page as we do so.
