Nominate a Fieldwork Hero

The impact that our training courses achieve has a great deal to do with the individuals who use them. Every week, large numbers of library staff all over the world, who are taking one of our courses, put their learning into practice by making practical changes in their workplace. It’s not always easy to fit coursework into day-to-day library work, nor is it simple to achieve sustainable change. So this feature will highlight the hard work and creativity of our learners - their experiments, successes and what they learn from the ideas that didn’t work out. We are delighted to honour Sepe Illig and Linda Longley as our first Fieldwork Heroes. If you’d like to nominate somebody for this feature, please contact Anne Downes.
