Effective practice for Libraries and information Services. 21st April 2016.
Senate House London

ALISS Half day Conference
14.00-16.30
In this time of austerity it is important that libraries demonstrate their worth by attracting and retaining users. This event will provide a range of perspectives from different libraries, offering practical tips that can be used to guide future practice.

At a time when many university libraries have moved away from providing on-demand one-to-one student support, Library and Learning Resources at London South Bank University have been doing the opposite. Alison Skoyles (Acting Senior Information Adviser) and Ros Smith (Information Skills Adviser) will be talking about initiatives to personalise student support at a widening participation university

Other presenters will include:

Eva Jirjahlke, ‎User Experience Researcher, LSE Library who will provide an introduction to the theory and practice of User experience research. She will then provide a case study of its application at the LSE Library considering the challenges and opportunities which it offers.

Angela Carritt, Information Skills Coordinator, Bodleian Libraries will discuss the development, use, and impact of the Library Assistant Project, an online induction tool which was developed to supplement face to face sessions.
