Library and Learning Services Conference - Tuesday 19 June


The University of Northampton Library and Learning Services Conference 2012 takes place on Tuesday 19 June.

Library and Learning Services sit at the heart of the student experience - supporting, enhancing and contributing to the teaching, learning and research activities of the University.

The aims of this conference are to raise awareness of the formal and informal research activity that underpins the work in Library and Learning Services; to showcase our most innovative practice, and to receive feedback on potential areas for development.

The conference is brimming with new ideas to inform practice, to advance teaching and learning pedagogy and to utilise exciting new technologies.

Who should attend?

The conference is aimed at Northampton Library users and HE Library and Information practitioners with an interest in research-informed practice.
