At the beginning of July I attended the BBSLG (British Business Schools’ Librarians Group) annual conference, hosted by Leeds Met and Leeds University and held at the Metropole hotel in Leeds. The subject this year was space, including library space, learning spaces and even “head space” (stress). There were talks by Philippa Levy (Sheffield Information Commons), Richard Partridge (De Montfort University) and Peter Robson (Leeds University). As I’m part of the organising committee for the conference, I arranged the sponsors’ exhibition and presentations.
Please click on http://www.bbslg.org/pdf/2008conf.pdf to find a review of the conference.
For the conference we were asked to provide a summary of the last year’s activities at our respective universities in less than 200 words. Replies were received from 48 institutions, including the University of Lincoln, and the document can be accessed at http://www.bbslg.org/dox/633518825020781250.pdf
p.s. If anyone is interested, the speaker on stress, Michael Comyn, gave us all a free cd which comprises exercises to combat stress! Apparently the secret is to breathe!
