I’ve just been discussing a seminar that I’m co-running for PhD and Masters students from the University of Missouri at the end of July. I’m very excited about it. The theme is public libraries and social justice, and my session will be exploring how libraries can engage with young people, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds. This great group of teenagers gave a wonderful case study about their involvement with Barnet Library Service at a similar session last year.
While this seminar is only for designated students, I do have a few open training courses coming up. The links will take you to information and booking details.
