We can now confirm the next Library Group meeting will be held on Thursday 6th June at the London School of Economics and Political Science, 10 Portugal Street, London, WC2A 2HD from 10.30 until 15.00.
This meeting is restricted to members of staff of LUPC and SUPC institutions.
This is the first joint LUPC/SUPC Library Group Meeting, introduced following the implementation of the SUPC/LUPC Strategic Partnership. We are hosting this first joint meeting as a pilot and will consider hosting an annual joint meeting in the future if Members of SUPC and LUPC both feel this is beneficial. We believe this wider participation will enable Members to network with a wider group of Library and Procurement colleagues and we can share common themes and messages across the two consortia.
The main part of the agenda will be to introduce the new Periodicals Agreement and welcome the new SUPC Library Group joint Chairs - Claire Tylee and Patricia Rogers. Other agenda items may also include a supplier update on the Books Agreement, a session on tackling Amazon spend, Brexit and its impact on purchasing books and periodicals, and potentially a case study on one of the topics previous highlighted as an area of interest by Library Group members. More details to follow.
Space is limited at this event so a maximum of two people per institution can attend. This may be two people from the Library or you may wish to bring a procurement colleague.
A full agenda and location details will be sent in due course.
