Fantastic Future…? How can we…? The Road Ahead. CoLRiC Conference Friday June 21st 2019 – a date for your diary
CoLRiC has an essential date for your 2019 diary. Our conference will be held on Friday June 21st 2019 in Birmingham.
We’ll be addressing key topics and challenges, including:
*How can we use social media effectively to promote services?
*How can we build local partnerships and collaborations?
*How can we innovate?
*How can our colleagues can work together more effectively?
*How can new technologies can be used to develop and enhance provision?
*How can we manage change and support one another?
*How can we thrive and offer excellence in challenging financial times?
Our keynote speaker will set the scene with a call to arms. We’re delighted to announce that Liz McGettigan will present our conference rally cry. Liz is a technology expert, strategic leader, library enthusiast and advocate for the ‘people side’ of technology. 'The world is marching forward into the fourth Industrial Revolution and unfortunately this could be with or without libraries. We need a transformation and our transformation must not primarily be a technological shift but an organisational one happening at the intersection of technology, business and people. If we want to capitalise and harness on the opportunities this new complex world of technology and global information brings, we must challenge the status quo and drive change recharge our leadership and the nurture a new breed of librarian.'
Please make a note in your diary, and booking opens in January.
In the interim, why not check out the presentations from this year’s 25th anniversary conference, ‘The Road Travelled’, available from the Members’ Only area of the website.
Best wishes, and have a great Christmas.
