This well attended network has proven to be highly popular and informative. One of our most successful networks, it supports colleagues to tackle the challenges they face as well as introduce them to new innovative approaches to work and managing the learning resource centres.

A variety of external organisations have attended this network, including JISC, CPD trainer Opening the Book and statistics and facts organisation Statista Ltd. Colleges also share their best practice and innovative work.

Regular tours of college LRCs take place during networks.

Group discussions feature at every network, giving delegates the opportunity to raise any concerns or challenges.
