As a "policy wonk", conferences and reports are meat and drink. But most reports are never seen again.
Follett report - 1990 - HE institution libs unable to cope with growing numbers. Over 100 new building projects were funded. Special funding for technology and cross-institutional projects.
Brexit threatens HE so much - international students, academics, research funding and programs. UUK has highlighted this.
New Library, the People's Network: completed in 3 months. Ensured public libs could start to use new tech, online content, staff training, internet connections. And training for all teachers and school libs in ICT.
Information as an asset: knowledge and information management agenda which CILIP is now trying to embrace.
Digital opportunity - commissioned by David Cameron to look at IP issues to see how could be used to make money for the country. Came out in favour of more use of exceptions.
