A network for new and aspiring library professionals
Join us on Saturday 4th June 2016 10am-4pm in Madlab for our summer event: OPEN, sponsored by LM Information Delivery. As the speakers will be covering disparate topics, we’ve gone for our first ever acronym! On the day you can expect:
Presentations from early career professionals
Engaging with library sectors
We will be starting the day with “Life, Librarianship and Everything”. Ned Potter, five years on from the last time he could legitimately call himself a New Professional, talks about the things he wished he’d known earlier.
We’ll then move on to 2 early career professional presenters (see here for more details). After a lunch break, we’ll hear from 2 more early career professional presenters.
Next up Jen Bayjoo will be sharing her Open Access in Practice experience with us, in her own inimitable way!
Finally, we will repeat our popular ‘speed networking’ session giving attendees the chance to speak to librarians from health, school, corporate and academic libraries. The networking will continue post-event in one of the lovely bars or cafes in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
Tickets are available via Eventbrite.
We look forward to seeing new and familiar faces!
