The event will look at developing and enhancing staff digital skills.

It is being organised and run by the ALN Technology CoP. The digital skills development theme is based upon survey responses carried out by ALN earlier in the year, which indicated that staff in member libraries would like an event covering staff training and digital/online skills.
