**BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!!**
The 21st century university library environment has become in many respects regarded as a “safe place” and space to “feel at home” for many students. Alongside the traditional resources, the library may replicate the comfort of a modern entertainment hub with cafés, big screen areas, comfy seating with demanding expectations from the patrons. In this atmosphere frontline staff may face increasingly difficult anti-social behaviour. Drawing on the rich experience of the speakers this workshop will examine approaches to setting boundaries for behaviour while maintaining a friendly professional environment for learning and teaching support.
This workshop would be ideal for front-line library staff, library supervisors and student services staff. Attendees will have a chance to network and share best practice with peers and professionals.
Guest speakers include:
Caroline Lloyd – Associate Director Library & Research Services, Goldsmiths University of London
Ash Charlton – Director, Ace Training
Stephen Bowman – Deputy Librarian, University of Chichester
Karen Ellis-Rees – Learning Resources Manager, University of Arts London
Alice Hughes – Goldsmiths, University of London (student speaker)
Carl Gent – Goldsmiths, University of London (student speaker)
