Technology from SAGE Insight 2023 Event

Join us in-person on 26th and 27th April 2023 at Unique Venues Birmingham for Technology from SAGE Insight.

Technology from SAGE Insight is a Higher Education event, aimed primarily at academic librarians. The event expands on the popular Talis Insight events, bringing you the much-loved Talis Aspire User Group sessions with additional panels, workshops, and presentations from thought leaders and librarians across the full Technology from SAGE portfolio of digital services; including Talis, Lean Library, and Sciwheel.

Over the two days you’ll hear best practice from industry leaders on Open Access, Open Educational Resources, use of data analytics in teaching and learning, and more. You’ll also get to network with other users and peers from Higher Education libraries, including at our Technology from SAGE Awards Dinner at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham on Wednesday 26th April.
