"UKSG webinars are routinely among the best organised and presented webinars I attend." - Martin Wolf, University of Liverpool


The webinars are a fantastic opportunity to listen to an expert speaker without any travel costs. Registrants can listen to the webinars live and take part in Q&A or watch a recording at a time that best suits their time zone or schedule. The hashtag for UKSG webinars is #UKSGwebinar which attracts considerable commentary during the live sessions. They are open to all (you do not need to be a member of UKSG).


"The webinars are consistently excellent and always pay a dividend in terms of the time invested in attending the live events or watching the recordings." - Jane Daniels, Cardiff Metropolitan University

"UKSG webinars provide an excellent opportunity to keep informed about industry developments and to consider the direction of travel that might impact the strategy of your own organisation." - Phil Caisley, Portage Consulting

All webinars are available free of charge. You can also register to view a recording of any webinar.

“Webinars allow me to attend sessions on topics both critical and tangential to my work with no more investment than my time--it's like being able to have a tasting plate from a dozen conferences.” – Colette Mak, University of Notre Dame

“It's easy to participate in a UKSG webinar. You get great examples of best practice, good ideas, and contact information if you want to follow up - and you don't have to travel.” – Marie Cairney, University of Glasgow
