You can find details of all our current and past (for Northern Collaboration and NoWAL) conferences in the menu on the right. 

Academic Libraries North's inaugural 2021 online conference was hosted by Lancaster University, and took place on Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th September.


The conference was delivered via Microsoft Teams (kindly hosted by Lancaster University).

Preparation for the conference:
In the weeks ahead of the conference, delegates will receive an invitation to join the Academic Libraries North Conference Teams space. This invitation may appear as coming from Lancaster University, the host institution. If you already use Microsoft Teams at your home institution you will be able to switch between institution spaces. If you use the Teams Desktop App, please note that the additional space may take up to 24 hours to appear for you.

Within the Teams space, you will be able to attend sessions and network with other delegates and sponsors.


Presenters have been asked to ensure their presentation slides are accessible and inclusive.

Live captioning can be used within Teams during live sessions and all recorded sessions made available following the conference will be captioned.
