There are still some free places available at regional Public Library seminars in London, Bristol, York, Manchester and Glasgow.
The seminars are titled 'GOOD, BETTER, BEST' and will be providing ideas and inspiration as to 'How public libraries are creating their own future.'
Speakers will be discussing and answering the following questions:
- How can public libraries take cost out of the service infrastructure without damaging frontline services?
- How will libraries continue to invest in service development while reducing overall running costs?
- TownsWeb Archiving Speaker: Going digital
New technologies are enabling more libraries to make their resource available online and open all hours, saving staff and space costs. Townsweb Archiving offers an update on how libraries are digitising reference material, local history resources, photographs and documents to provide enhanced online library services, greater public access and potential income streams.
This series of regional seminars brings together expertise from some of the leading technology and service companies in the library sector to explore changing roles, different ways of working, and new models for service delivery, along with an update on new products and technology.
Taking place in May and June 2011 you can find out more and book your free place here.
