Supporting Our Users: Current Trends in Academic Liaison and Outreach


6:00 pm

Event Type

cpd25’s programme of ten two-hour workshops was devised primarily to support CILIP Chartership and ACLIP candidates. However, many of the events in the programme are highly relevant to staff working as Library Assistants, Senior Library Assistants and so on. The events are aimed, therefore, at all levels of library staff – who may or may not be seeking Certification or Chartership, but who wish to further their professional skills and development.

Places are available on the whole series (£140 for cpd25 members, £190 for external organisations) or individual events (£25 for cpd25, £45 otherwise).
