East of England Information Services Group introduce our latest seminar:-
Providing Effective Information Services for Generation Y - can you have your cake and eat it too?
They are technologically advanced, but is Generation Y as information literate as Generation X? Are we providing information services that are relevant to today's information users? As a result of this day you will be able to help your users or clients to identify, access, interpret, and evaluate, the information they need.
The seminar will take place at Cambridge Central Library on 18th July 2013 will cost £35.00 plus VAT per person (which includes lunch and refreshments).
Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
