The ‘V’ Word

The next dayschool training event from LocScot, the Scottish CILIP Local Studies Group, is on the hot topic of volunteers and volunteering in libraries and the heritage sector. It will be held on Friday 20th January 2017 at the National Library of Scotland.

This LocScot dayschool tackles the contentious subject of volunteers in the workplace. The training day will look at examples of good practice of using volunteers within libraries, the heritage sector and communities; share our own experiences; and discuss ways to successfully define, plan, and manage volunteers and voluntary projects.

Guest speakers from the National Library of Scotland, Glasgow Women’s Library, Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service at Edinburgh Libraries and the Living Memory Association will share their best practice and advice.

  1. Hello,

    I’ve emailed David Smith to request one place on this event next Friday, and received no response. I’ve tried contacting East Dunbarton Council and they say he’s no longer employed with them. Could somebody please let me know who best to email/phone to make sure my attendance is confirmed?

    I work for the Scottish Poetry Library and manage their volunteers, so am very keen to attend. I’d also like some more details about the timings of the day and how it will be structured.

    Many thanks, Gillian Hamnett

    1. Hi Gillian

      Sorry you’ve had difficulties booking. That all sounds very odd!

      FYI – someone from Edinburgh Libraries is trying to work out why the email to David went astray and to confirm a place for you at the event.

      Best regards

      jane
