Update to Conference Programme:
13.45-15.15: “As Libraries change… the way forward for languages librarianship?’’
(Chair: Kate Williams, University of Warwick)
Jane Harvell (University of Sussex), Rachel Kirkwood (University of Manchester), Teresa Elmes and Graeme Lockheart (King’s College London), Maureen Pinder (University of Bradford).
A panel of UK librarians will present their current institutions and roles, with a focus on institutions that have moved either wholly or partly from subject-based to function-based teams. They will lead a discussion with conference delegates, and consider how best the WESLINE groups can provide support for people in the subject aspects of their roles
