Thank you to everyone who attended #NAGcd11 in Manchester this week; it was a great mix of new faces and NAG old-timers providing some fantastic networking opportunities for everyone.

Our speakers were:

  • Rebecca Gower and Jayne Kelly (Cambridge University): Is it for teaching, for research, or both?: collaboration on eBooks in Cambridge.
  • Olivia Walsby (University of Manchester): Reading List Service overhaul at The University of Manchester Library; Are we nearly there yet…?
  • Natalia Gordon (Leeds Beckett): Behind the scenes of an implementation: Fear the change but create the workflow anyways
  • Sheila Candeland (Manchester Metropolitan University): ‘This is Manchester, we do things differently here’: the story of a collaborative model to support reading for pleasure
  • J. Mackenzie (Leeds Beckett): Breaking the perception of digital literacy, the contemporary conceptualisation of information technology.’ Addressing information and communications technology knowledge in HE students and staff.
  • Chris Harrison (Cambridge University Press): Disruption and innovation in the publishing landscape: challenging the binary divide

If you attended and you have any feedback for us, there is an online form available here.  We are particularly interested to hear how you felt the use of Glisser for sharing slides and asking questions worked for you as we are evaluating whether to continue paying for this service.  If you have more detailed comments about Glisser, please do email us.

If you are looking for the slides from the day, they are available as PDFs to download in the “Professional Development Materials” section of our “Learn” tab above for NAG Members.  Some papers were also included in our journal ‘Taking Stock’ (28:2),  which is available for NAG Members here.

As always, the NAG Seminar could not happen without our sponsors so a final big thank you to:
