Announcing the publication of CoLRiC Impact issue 3, May 2021

CoLRiC is delighted to announce the publication of the issue 3, 2021 of our e-newsletter CoLRiC Impact.

Editor Helen Sherwood writes:

The theme of this issue is teamwork. What does this mean? A simple definition is “the willingness of a group of people to work together to achieve a common aim”. Our contributors have provided us with several examples of teamworking and they all make interesting reading. There is an example of cross college working that has meant an award-winning project is still going strong, as well as the teamwork that has helped to capture student experiences during lockdown. Our featured sponsor, IS Oxford, highlights the importance of college and supplier working together to provide the right support for customers.

CoLRiC News includes the 2021 call for applications/nominations for two prestigious CoLRiC awards, including the inaugural CoLRiC Award for Innovative Practice (formerly known as the Best Practice Award). There’s an executive summary of the general findings of the 2020 CoLRiC survey and a reminder about CoLRiC’s Peer Accreditation Scheme, which provides the opportunity to initiate a supportive and rigorous assessment of your library and learning resource services against a set of specific criteria.

Contents include:

  • A Word from our Chairs
  • IS Oxford in defence of the ‘listicle’
  • Spotlight on Rebecca Knights, Library/Learning Resource Centre Manager, Shipley College
  • Best Practice Award 2019: what happened next? by Grazyna Kuczera, CoLRiC Executive Committee member and College Librarian. Northampton College
