Forthcoming events

New Christmas event on zoom

Transitioning to new ways of working  supporting ourselves and our users-   the ALISS Christmas  hot chocolate and experience sharing event!

8th December 2-4pm

Like all infomation professional ALISS members have faced the challenges of remote and hybrid working over the last few months and are now considering possible new futures both for  supporting  service users and colleagues . At this point we felt we wanted to organise a discussion of issues we have faced, lessons learned and ways forward for practitioners. The afternoon  will cover several general themes  in an informal supportive atmosphere. Each will have a  facilitator presenting insight from their institution offering  practical cheap  tips and encouraging discussion from delegates.
