Booker Briefings for All Staff new Thu 5 Dec 2019   10:00 Finished

On the 30th September, the University Libraries began using Booker as the new booking system for meeting rooms across the Libraries.

To walk staff through the new system and to answer any questions, Rob Smith from UIS will be hosting a Booker Briefing for All Staff on Monday 25th November at 2pm - 4pm in the Milstein Room, and Thursday 5th December at 10am - 12pm.

These sessions are drop ins, so please pop along between these times as most suitable for you!

Both Briefings will be the same and are open drop in events.

This session is designed to provide library staff with hints and tips on academic publishing pathways from an experienced journal editor.

The session will look at what happens during the publishing process as well as how to best navigate the world of academic publishing.

It would be of use to those librarians supporting researchers with publications and those looking to publish their own work.

A drop-in session for Cambridge University Staff who are interested to learn more about management, team leading and other apprenticeships.
