You are not alone: working solo in art, craft and design libraries

Education workshop, Crafts Council
17 September 2010 13:00-16:30

The aim of this half day workshop is to give the solo librarian or those working in very small teams the opportunity to network and share best practice.   The organisers are bringing together speakers who have first hand experience of dealing with the challenges of this unique situation.

The aim is to provide an opportunity to create a network of solo art library specialist for professional development and mentoring support.
