“The Future of Libraries” poster session 2020

We are delighted to share with you posters, prepared by M25 Consortium members, on “The Future of Libraries” conference theme. When the theme “The Future of Libraries” was selected for our 2020 Annual Conference we couldn’t have imagined the current circumstances we’re now all facing due to Covid-19. Now, more than ever, institutions are adapting to new ways of working and preparing to future-proof their service. With this in mind we re-opened the call for posters asking members for submissions relating to recent experiences and challenges dealing with operational  and/or strategic change due to Covid-19. We hope these posters will offer an insight into the fascinating work taking place in member institutions and provide some practical tips for you and your services. Posters will be uploaded on a rolling basis between May and July 2020.
