Staff Development in UCL Library Services

By Paul Ayris, on 12 August 2013

Library Services’ Open Forum

At the recent Staff Conference (2013), a question was raised in one of the plenary sessions about the timing of the Library’s Open Forum. This Forum is intended for end-users of the Library’s facilities and services, to give them the opportunity to comment on the Library’s offering. Members of library staff are more than welcome to attend the Forum, which (it is hoped) will be held in Second Term 2014. Arrangements for this meeting are already in train.

The Library’s Staff Development and Training Committee has, at my request, considered whether the Library should hold another Forum on the same model in the 1st Term. This would complement the Open Forum in 2nd Term and the Staff Conference in the 3rd Term. The feeling is that this Blog could usefully fulfil the role of a Forum in 1st Term instead, by providing a vehicle for colleagues to share notes of their attendance at Conferences, and to offer news of new developments in the Library where they work.

I look forward to reading such reports on this Blog, and I will let you know details of the Open Forum as soon as they are known.

Director of UCL Library Services
