Next JIBS event: "Working together in difficult times: strategies for e-resource budgeting, negotiation and collection review" (York, 2nd Dec)

Our next JIBS event will be looking at the highly topical area of how academic libraries respond to dramatic funding cuts in the "Age of Austerity".

How can we negotiate better deals from publishers? Is there a role for greater collaboration?

The workshop will be held at the King's Manor in York, on Thursday 2nd December 2010.

Speakers include: Sally Curry (Research Information Network); Jill Taylor-Roe (NESLi2); Tony Kidd (SHEDL) and Martin Gill (University of Leeds).

The JIBS AGM will take place at lunchtime and this year we are pleased to welcome the winner of the JIBS student prize 2010: Nicky Ransom, who will give a short presentation based on her dissertation.
