This will be a thought-provoking programme, encouraging imaginative thought about library services and how to tailor them to suit the needs/habits of 21st century students. There will be a keynote speaker followed by presentations from senior staff at two M25 Consortium member institutions, about innovative services they have developed to suit the needs of their students.
