Speaker: Chris Coates, Librarian of the TUC (Trades Union Congress) Collections at London Metropolitan University
Date: Monday, 8th October 2012
Venue: The Square (Wine Bar), Tolmers Square, Somers Town, London NW1
Chris Coates, Librarian of the TUC Collections at London Metropolitan University, will talk about the history of the Collections, the variety of their content, and their contribution to research into both historical and current aspects of workplace life and politics.
Chris will also discuss the Collections’ digitisation programme and issues relating to opening up an institutional library to make them accessible to a wider user group. Like the other special collection in Londonmet – the Women’s Library – the TUC Collections’ future was under threat due to a shortfall in funding, but successful talks over a proposed a joint-funding initiative with the Trades Union Congress was agreed in June
This talk will be of particular value to anyone registered for CILIP Chartership and can contribute towards CPD requirements. Refreshments will be available afterwards.
