Technology Community of Practice

The Technology CoP met for the first time in 2018, chaired by Emily Shields.  

The CoP has also met on:

  • 14th February 2019 at the University of Manchester's Alan Gilbert Learning Commons.  The meeting firstly explored Manchester's Digilab followed by roundtable discussions on key topics.
  • 15th June 2020, hosted online by Tim Leonard from the University of Bolton.  The group looked at how libraries have adapted services through technology during the COVID-19 pandemic; the management of user groups for access eg ‘full’ staff and students vs external students, walk in user etc; how people are managing these groups across authentication services like EZProxy and Shibboleth; and how the groups are mapped internally with University systems like swipe access.  For the full notes, please click here.

The CoP is looking for additional members - if you would like to join or are interested in what kind of topics they are looking at, see the note from Emily following the first meeting.
