MLAG Seminar – Call for Speakers
The MLAG Events and Training Working Group is organising a seminar to take place later in 2011 and we would like your help.
The seminar will investigate the importance of working together – both within an individual institution and more widely in partnership with other Museums. The underlying theme will be how an archive and library service can achieve a greater profile within its parent organisation.
The seminar will address what can be done by archives and library departments to meet the current challenges faced by the profession. It will offer a chance to discuss successful initiatives and concerns in a positive and supportive environment. The seminar will highlight the issues arising from the current economic climate and how services have adapted to respond to these issues. Where innovation has thrived in the face of adversity speakers might discuss enterprises that did not previously exist or that have worked particularly well.
This informal event will be of interest to all MLAG members whether you represent a large or a small organisation; whether you are a senior manager or new to the museum sector – we all have a role to play in fighting our corner.
We would like to invite MLAG members who are interested in speaking at the seminar to contact us. Expressions of interest, along with a short outline of your proposed topic, should be sent to Richard Wragg at email@example.com. A date for the seminar will be agreed in the next few months but is likely to be September or October 2011. To ensure the seminar is useful to as many members as possible we would also like to hear of any specific topics you think should be covered. Ideas can be sent to the address above or, better yet, why not comment via the blog.
