Discussion forum

A key membership benefit of CoLRiC is access to our private discussion forum, hosted by JiscMail. In order to access the discussion forum, you must create an account with JiscMail.

Registration with JiscMail is free and employees at any member College can join using their work email address.

It’s a great place to ask a question, elicit feedback on a topic, initiate a research project, share a document or simply sound off about any issues that are concerning you. The forum underpins the CoLRiC community and is often cited as a key source of support for library and learning resource services professionals across the FE and Sixth Form College sector.

Topics our members have discussed so far in 2022 are wide ranging, and include:

  • Shelf ready services for books – a request for advice and experiences
  • A request for information, and a discussion on, team structures and roles
  • A discussion on laptop self-service lockers
  • Discussion and recommendations on digitising print articles
  • How to write a 3-D printer policy
  • Managing book donations
  • A discussion on how different colleges allocate departmental book budgets

You can access CoLRiC’s Members’ Only discussion forum here, or email our Administration team for further information ([email protected]). Please remember you must create your own JiscMail account to gain access.
