18th May 2007, 10.00am – 15.30pm
Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge
Who should attend?
This event is aimed at anyone who is involved with, or interested in, multi-site academic LIS provision.
Brief for the day:
Running a contemporary academic information service is a complicated business under any circumstance. But the complexities, costs and constraints seem to multiply when you have to provide that service over a number of sites. How can multi-site services be managed to best effect? How can the complexities and constraints be addressed and reduced? And are there positive aspects to multi-site provision which can be capitalised upon?
This cpd25 seminar will feature case studies drawn from four very varied institutions, with multi-site arrangements in various stages of maturity.

UCL: The view from long-established, research-led university
Kingston University: The view from Customer Services in a university with mature multi-site arrangements
