CoLRiC Impact is our e-newsletter showcasing innovative ideas and exemplary practice in library and learning resource services across Further Education and the Sixth Form College sector.

It features news stories, articles, case studies, research studies, interviews and more shared by our members and sponsors. Topics covered are wide ranging and include collaboration initiatives, EdTech programmes/projects, marketing, service redesign, skills development – and much more.
