Past Event – JCS 2018

The first ever JCS conference was held at Aston University, Birmingham, UK on Friday 20 November 2018. Titled: From Digital Literacy to Independent Learning: challenges and opportunities for librarians and teachers.

JCS brought together experts in the field of digital literacy, librarians, school and college leaders, and providers of authoritative sources to share their knowledge and good practice in supporting the challenges and opportunities for librarians and teachers in an increasingly complex and digitised world.

The conference was such as success that due to high demand we’ve already decided to deliver another conference next year! So watch this space for updates.

“I’d like to say that it was about the best one-day conference I have ever attended; the focus was almost exclusively on things which were relevant to what I do, and we all came away bursting with ideas for things we want to try. It was good to see where other people are; we felt that we are pretty well placed in terms of what we do, but it was great to hear how other practitioners go about things, and they were very generous in sharing approaches-there were many useful tweaks to consider, much re-invention of wheels saved! Archie Black, Head Librarian, Forest School, London
