In support of CONUL’s strategic objective of being the platform for our international presence,
CONUL Training & Development is delighted to announce the second collaborative ERASMUS Library
Staff Mobility week, 18-22 June 2018, in Dublin.
The libraries of Dublin City University, Dublin Institute of Technology, Maynooth University, National
Library of Ireland, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, University College Dublin and University of
Dublin, Trinity College have come together to provide a dynamic and engaging programme of
training for library colleagues under the ERASMUS scheme.
The programme consists of presentations by library staff in the organising institutions, presentations
from the selected participants, joint group work exercises and other interactive tasks. It will also
include visits to the libraries of Dublin City University, Dublin Institute of Technology, Maynooth
University, National Library of Ireland, University College Dublin and University of Dublin, Trinity
College.

Themes:

  • Information and digital literacies
  • Space
  • Cultural heritage including unique & distinct collections and archives
  • Enabling Research
  • Customer Service/User Experience (UX)
  • Libraries & Change

The target group is professional library staff with varied backgrounds working in universities or other
research orientated libraries with an interest in sharing ideas and networking with colleagues. All
participants must be awarded ERASMUS funding from their home institutions.
This year, one librarian from each of the participating CONUL institutions will have the opportunity
to attend the programme and to interact with international colleagues.
