25th Anniversary Celebrations
Refreshments will be available at the end of the meeting to celebrate SWOP’s anniversary and give an opportunity to catch up with colleagues.

For catering purposes please let me know if you are able to attend this meeting no later than close of play Friday 7th November including any dietary requirements.

SWOP is currently in the process of recruiting new members for the Business Committee.  The Business Committee meets three times a year and members are currently involved in taking forward some exciting collaborative eLearning projects with RGU and SLLG.  Being part of the BC provides excellent opportunities to work collaboratively with colleagues who specialise in a range of Library and Information services providing creative opportunities for CPD activity and valuable cross industry networking.  If you are interested please contact Fiona Laing

If you haven’t already done so, please post a photo of your library space – on Twitter, here on the website, or on the Knowledge Hub pages – to enter the #swop25th competition

I look forward to seeing you there

Helen Costello
SWOP Secretary
