A network for new and aspiring library professionals
We, at Manchester NLPN, take evaluation forms seriously. The forms completed for our summer event back in June 2012 influenced our decision when choosing the three speakers for the Autumn Event. This post is a break-down of the responses provided on the evaluation forms from that event.
100% of those who completed the evaluation forms would recommend the event to a friend. The reasons for recommending the event ranged from the event being free, offering networking opportunities to providing new insights into important topics affecting the library sector.
Our network is still in its infancy, so we appreciate that some areas need improving. The consensus for improvement was largely aimed at the choice of venue. We have taken note of this concern, and as the network grows we will look for a venue that reflects the needs of the delegates and those of the speakers. We will continue to choose venues that have excellent transport links for those who are unable to drive or do not wish to pay for parking.
We had a fantastic response to the question ‘what topics would you like to see at future events?’ Themes that cropped up included:
Interestingly, there was also a number of requests for topics that had already been covered by the Summer and Autumn event, these included Information Literacy, Social Media and HTML. We will take this on board, although we are also aware that some delegates would prefer to attend an event with different topics.
We will be using these forms to guide our decision for the third Manchester NLPN Event.
Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the following:
See you all at the next Manchester NLPN Event
