Supporting and Enabling External Engagement July 29, 2010Posted by Chris Y in : Events, Updates , comments closed
We are hosting a free one-day conference on Friday 1st October 2010 at the Lakeside Conference Centre, Aston University, Birmingham.
Supporting and Enabling External Engagement will explore key issues raised during the workshops, conference sessions and consultations held by this project over the past 18 months.
Over 75 UK HE and FE institutions and organisations were represented during these activities and the event audiences were drawn from staff at all levels from within library and IT services – as well as from across the whole range of management and administrative functions.
Five key areas emerged from those sessions, encompassing areas of activity which cut across all of the audience groups consulted during the project.
- Information resource management: Licensing and access for external partners
- Network and systems: Policy and practice for development, management and access
- Relationship management – how does it benefit us?: People, processes and opportunities
- Engaging with internal strategy: Communication, recognition and buy-in
- Professional development and skills for engagement: Recognised development of our capacity
The conference itself will include a variety of sessions exploring current, practical resources and advice in these areas.
You will also hear about activities taking place within amongst others, JISC Collections, UCISA and JANET – some of which have been informed by the outcomes emerging from this project – as well as identify opportunities for you to participate and benefit early from some of that work.
Places on the conference are free and strictly limited so make sure you book early by visiting:Updates , comments closed

Use of JISC Legal Services in BCE July 1, 2010Posted by Chris Y in : Updates , comments closed
JISC Legal are looking for people who have used their resources and service to assist with business and community engagement (external engagement) activities. They’re looking to produce a useful case study for the sector in order to highlight the BCE work being carried out by institutions and to raise awareness of available JISC Legal support.
