Kitty Inglis will explore opportunities and challenges for academic libraries in a digital age at Talis Insight 2015
Kitty Inglis joins us for Day One at Talis Insight 2015. In addition to being the Librarian at University of Sussex, Kitty is also a member of the SCONUL Executive Board.
Here is a title and a short synopsis from Kitty, on her session for the 15th of April:
Delivering academic library services in a digital age: Opportunities and challenges
Academic libraries need to be agile and their staff equipped with the requisite skills in order to be able to contribute effectively to teaching, learning and research in an increasingly digital environment. The way in which content is created, distributed and consumed is changing rapidly and librarians have a central role to play in ensuring its quality and discoverability and in providing appropriate spaces and services to facilitate pedagogy and scholarship.
With little or no evidence to suggest a slow-down in the development, adoption and utilisation of technology in HE, I will explore the opportunities and challenges faced by libraries as we transition to a primarily digital mode of operation.
Kitty’s session starts at 11:25 AM on Day One at Talis Insight 2015. You can still book your place, but spaces are now filling quickly. So don’t miss out! You can find the full speaker line up and running order on the conference website.
