Evenemang kommittén

The Events Committee organises various webinars, talks from guest speakers and experts, graduate career days, networking and informal social events, often in collaboration with other information and library organisations.

Our programme of events would not be possible without the generous and continued support from our sponsorer, throughout the years, as well as our continued association with organisations in promoting the library and information world as a potential career.
