UoL Library Blog

Develop, debate, innovate.


This blog aims primarily to be an informal place for all University of Leicester Library staff to share, debate, reflect and comment on matters relevant to their working activities. The long term hope is that this blog will become, over time, a knowledge based resource for staff to refer to, and perhaps form a template for future blog based resources.


This blog was set up as an informal news and discussion place for librarians and other interested parties at the University of Leicester in the UK.  Any views and opinions expressed solely reflect those of the individuals who write them and do not necessarily reflect the opinions and policy of the University of Leicester as an institution.

No guarantees are made to the accuracy of the information provided, and in all instances readers are advised to contact the person (or persons) posting/commenting as is appropriate.
