Joining the Dots
19 October 2017 | 3:11 pm

Collaborating with other services in our HE and FE institutions

No library functions alone: to achieve the maximum benefit for our students, we need to seek opportunities to collaborate within our institution and with partners. Invited speakers will share their experiences of supporting students through the transition from FE to HE, co-designing and delivering a life sciences module, and working with other campus services to enhance students' experiences of academic life at all levels. Bring your own success stories, not-so-successful undertakings and new ideas to share with other delegates. A full programme will be released shortly.


30 places are available.

This event has been organised by the Yorkshire & Humberside branch of the Academic and Research Libraries Group.
