Description

This event is aimed at, but not limited to, public library staff. It’s an opportunity to find out what’s going on with e-lending nationally, particularly with the proposed Sieghart pilot projects, and to start planning for a proposed National E-Reading Day in 2014. In the afternoon we are offering breakout sessions where we can learn from each other on the subjects of:

Ideas for training and involving staff

  • Running public and staff workshops – helping people to use library ebooks
  • Promoting your ebook service
  • Ebook platforms and library management systems
  • Consortium purchasing

We’re very excited that the programme will take place at the new Library of Birmingham. We hope there will be the opportunity of a guided tour before the workshop, and you can do self-guided tours throughout the day.

Because of demand, we will be limiting takeup to one place per authority / organisation.

This event is sponsored by Bibliotheca, the world's leading technology supplier to libraries.
