Collaborative Partners Librarians join forces
The University of Derby Library hosted an event for Librarians and Learning Resource Centre managers at our UK partner instituitions the 2nd June 2015. An inaugural event took place in November 2014, which attracted 7 attendees from 6 partner colleges. This time 14 attended from 11 colleges ranging from as far north as Preston and as far south as The London College. In the morning, there were presentations on Study Skills support and innovative induction practices, including an opportunity for the collaborative partners to try and solve the clues for a ‘Murder in the Library’. In the afternoon, a roundtable discussion gave partners and the university an opportunity to update each other on developments at each institution and to share some common challenges, inviting solutions from colleagues. Both events have helped to strengthen ties between subject librarians at the university and those at the partner colleges.
