Event Details

New Teams for a New Era

SCONUL will be holding its one-day 2012 Winter conference at the Wellcome Institute on the theme of the emerging skills needs of university and academic libraries. As usual, it will provide delegates with an opportunity to debate current issues with peers, and to hear from a range of expert opinion from within and beyond the library community. However, this year the conference will be structured in such a way as to deliver a specific set of outputs: a map of future skills needs and the core elements of job descriptions which will be developed further after the conference.
