RLUK launches two new member networks

Research Libraries UK (RLUK) represents 37 research libraries in the UK and Ireland.

At the latest RLUK conference, which was attended by 200 international delegates, two new membership networks were launched. Both the networks were created as a direct result of suggestions from the RLUK membership.

The Collections Strategy Network (CSN) will be a professional-peer network for people responsible for collection strategy within RLUK member libraries. The network will develop programmes of work relating to the collective management of print collections, the management of content costs, and the digital shift occurring within collections. 

The New Directors Network (NDN) will be a professional-peer network for RLUK members who have recently been appointed as library directors or for those in interim positions. It will act as a forum for discussion, peer development, and knowledge sharing, and will also lead and deliver elements of Reshaping Scholarship. The network is currently developing a programme of meetings following an informal launch at this year’s conference and is actively looking for opportunities to work with the other RLUK networks.

Both networks will actively engage with RLUK’s other member networks.
