CityLIS Events 16/17

***This listing shows extracurricular events and guest lectures associated with the CityLIS London Library School for the academic year 16/17. Whilst most of the events are intended for those formally enrolled on a CityLIS course, we occasionally have spare places, so if you would like to come along please send a request via email to the individual event organiser, who will usually be listed alongside each entry.

Additionally, we run an AfterHours series of discussions and workshops which are open to all, and usually free of charge. These are tagged #AfterHours, and you can just come along, although sometimes, we may ask attendees to register via an Eventbrite booking form.

If you have attended one of our CityLIS open evenings, and you would like to sit in on one of our scheduled classes, please email lyn@city.ac.uk for dates and times.

A selection of our scheduled classes are included in this listing, when they are deemed to be of wider interest to the sector.

If you have any queries about any of the events, please contact the individual event organiser.
