Virtual Annual Conference 2022- All things being equal: the regional contribution of libraries

The M25 Consortium’s 2022 virtual conference took place on Wednesday 11th May on Zoom. The theme this year was “All things being equal: the regional contribution of libraries” and explored community engagement and widening participation initiatives in M25 libraries. What does the civic agenda mean for academic libraries and how can libraries work with the community to address regional issues? What is ‘levelling up’ and what does this mean for our workforce? How are widening participation agendas impacting library staff, strategy, services and users? How do we work with other sectors effectively? 

Full recordings of all the presentations are available in the Members’ Area (M25 Members only)
