We will firstly look at what WHELF does and include the implementation of the consortial LMS which will allow us to open up our collections and work together in more proactive ways across Wales. We will touch briefly on the library of the future and then highlight some of the work we are doing around special collections, digital exhibitions and digital preservation. This will then be followed by a discussion on how we can all further promote and market our unique collections.
