Woburn House Conference Centre



How can we work successfully with our students to deliver our services? Is there a way of increasing student employability whilst improving our services?

This event explores the ways that Libraries have provided opportunities for students to be partners in their Library. Ranging from graduate traineeships & work placements to using students in research. Presenters will cover how they have offered a chance for students to gain valuable skills and experience in their work places. They will share the impact it’s had on their services and the benefits for the students they’ve worked alongside.
