National Acquisitions Group Conference 2013 will once again be held at the Royal York Hotel, York, on Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th September.
The traditional image of a library continues to evolve as libraries and the services offered continue to adapt and change. Libraries up and down the country are constantly developing successful processes and strategies, adapting their ways of working as technology continues to develop, and continually turning what were considered to be challenges into opportunities. With this in mind, and thinking about sharing ideas and practices in order to look to the future, the theme for this year’s conference will be ‘Sharing Today, Securing Tomorrow’.
NAG’s Conference will provide the opportunity to hear about various developments and strategies through a mixture of workshops and plenary sessions from practitioners from a wide variety of backgrounds, who can share their experience in areas such as Shared Services, Print PDA, RDA, RFID, as well as strategies for accelerated adoption of digital resources, among other topics.We will be able to share more information on content as soon as it is available.
As in previous years, there will be numerous opportunities to network with publishers and library suppliers, and colleagues in both public and academic libraries, as well as a chance to share your own knowledge and experience.
The timetable will be compact, and will involve only one night’s stay for most delegates. The cost has been held at the same level as the past 3 years (£325 for members, £375 for non-members) until the end of July, after which there will be a slight increase to £350/ £400.
Booking will open later in April, as will advertising and sponsorship opportunities
