About the Forum
Our core aims:
- To organise relevant events and activities to support the Alumni Library Service (ALS) community
- To conduct relevant research in the field of ALS and share findings
- To encourage effective relationships between libraries, vendors, alumni offices and other relevant parties
- To support the negotiation of licensing online resources for alumni use
In order to facilitate discussions with vendors, we have produced a vendor flyer.
The Forum first started life in 2013 as a one-off event to bring libraries together with vendors to discuss alumni library service development. Since then we have had a number of successful events and expanded to include Alumni Office staff. We have a vibrant and lively committee to help take things further forward.
