CILIP launches free Lunch & Learn series for members
How Wi-Fi can turn libraries from cool places to hotspots is first theme
CILIP: The Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals is launching a series of 90-minute Lunch & Learn at CILIP sessions. They will provide members with expert insights into interesting new technologies and business developments that directly impact on their operations.
Lunch & Learn at CILIP on 2 October has the theme Turning libraries from cool places to hotspots - implementing public Wi-Fi solutions. Hosted at CILIP's London offices and presented in conjunction with Wi-Fi specialists Regenerate IT, the 90-minute session will include expert presentations, practical exercises, case studies and discussion time.
Participants will see how they can take the lead on a Wi-Fi project, set clear objectives for the technology and deliver it to budget and on time with measurable key performance indicators. The session will also demonstrate the 'nuts and bolts' of Wi-Fi and offer insightful evidence of success in other library services.
Just 30 free places are available for business managers from across the library community. Attendance is restricted to CILIP members and early booking is recommended via the CILIP website at www.cilip.org.uk/lunchandlearn or by e-mailing Mailto:[log in to unmask]
Further Lunch & Learn at CILIP sessions are being planned as part of a continuing programme to exclusively benefit CILIP members.
