Curator and Exhibitions Network

The Curator and Exhibitions Network supports individuals working in M25 Member libraries with curatorial responsibilities or holding curator roles within the library service. The network is open to any individual working in an M25 library but you may find it especially useful if you’re working with special collections, object-led collections, or those responsible for exhibiting collections, including books. The aim of the group is to share experiences, best practices and to act as a professional support network. The group runs workshops on topics chosen by group members. The workshops will be ‘run by the Network, for the Network’ so this is a collaborative and safe environment for individuals to share their experiences and discuss common issues.

We encourage members of staff from all levels of experience to join the Network’s mailing list. If you’re interested please contact the M25 team at
