4:30 pm

Event Type

cpd25 is delighted to offer a rare opportunity to attend an Open Day at Parliament for Librarians and Information Officers, organised by the House of Commons Library & Information Service. This full-day event will take place on Wednesday, 15th February 2011, from 9.50am to 4.30pm. The day is structured around presentations in the morning, a sandwich lunch, followed by tours of one or two areas of the House, including the Members’ Library.

The House of Commons Library is placed within the Department of Information Services, which delivers a wide range of information, research and related services to Members of Parliament and the public. The Library prepares a range of pre-prepared briefing material and online services to inform both parliamentary debate and those involved in it. These include detailed research papers on legislation and other topical issues, shorter standard notes on a wide range of current issues, and debate packs on current debates in the Chamber or Westminster Hall. It also provides responses to requests from individual Members and their staff for information and briefing in connection with their parliamentary duties. The Library takes a leading role in parliament-wide information management activities, notably the indexing of parliamentary material to facilitate access and reuse by others.

Places on this event for cpd25 are limited to TEN only, and will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. In view of the limited numbers, we can only allow one attendee per institution.

Cost: £20 per place (payable by cheque to GBS re HOC Administration). Cheques will need to be sent direct to the Houses of Parliament – further instructions regarding this will be sent to the successful attendees once all the places have been booked.

Location: Portcullis House, Victoria Embankment, London SW1A 2LW
