M25 Members’ Seminar: Library Hub Knowledge Exchange


2:00 pm - 3:45 pm

Event Type

The Search25 Task and Finish Group invite staff from M25 member institutions to a seminar at 2 pm on Wednesday 24th March to provide information and support for M25 members who would like to learn more about Jisc’s Library Hub/NBK shared catalogue service in advance of the planned retirement of the Search25 service in July 2021. We have invited Jisc to talk with M25 members about the process and benefits of joining Library Hub and there will be an opportunity to ask questions. There will also be a small panel of M25 member institutions who are already in Library Hub discussing their experiences. Please see the draft programme below.

Location: Zoom (the link will be sent to delegates in advance of the event)

Cost: Free of charge – registration is essential, please use the form at the bottom of the page.

Eligibility to attend: M25 Members only
Staff from all M25 member institutions are welcome to attend, but the event is specifically aimed at Systems Librarians and Heads of Service or equivalent in institutions not yet using Library Hub.
