CPD25 24/7 Conference
26th April 2005
9.30am – 4.15pm
The Hatton
51 – 53 Hatton Garden
London
EC1N 8HN
24/7 opening has remained a lively topic of debate. Although only a handful
of libraries offer a 24/7 service, many are considering remaining open for
longer and wrestling with the implications. Is extended opening intended for
students or to enhance the university’s reputation? What services are to be
made available and by whom? How is the extension to opening to be funded
and can the university be persuaded to pay? How will the library staff cope
with the culture change?
Our speakers will address these issues and many others as well. If your library
service is considering extending its opening hours, this is the event for
you.
