Exchange of Experience: supporting each other during Covid [TG4/Exchange]


2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Event Type

This is planned to be the first of a series of online events, aiming to provide a safe and supportive space for staff to meet and share issues and experiences of library work during the pandemic. The session will run for an hour, using Zoom breakout spaces to allow small group chat. Moderators will be present to help collate ideas which can be shared with all participants.

This event is open to all M25 Consortium members, but would benefit in particular Senior Library assistants, Information Services Supervisors, Library Assistants, Information Assistants or their equivalent. As the annual SLA Conference has been postponed this year, and the networking element of that is very valuable, this seems a good way to start the series.  We are using a theme for each event, so there is a focus. For this event, it is around sharing and caring. This could include sharing top tips about how you, and your institutions, have maintained positivity during lock downs. What has worked well and what hasn’t. Also, what practices you have put into place to support your teams and students to create a safe environment.

Information for joining this session:
