CILIP SWMN and SWRLS are hosting a Digital Day in Saltash

Digital Day is an event for library and information workers from all sectors.

By sharing experiences, attendees will learn about how technologies are being used and promoted in libraries and information settings and to think about how they might be used in their own.  

The event is aimed at people with either a little knowledge who are keen to learn more or those more experienced users who are happy to share what they know in an informal, relaxed atmosphere.

If you’re interested in technology we’d love you to join us! The morning session will be a show and tell so if you’re doing something different, this is your chance to show it off, share your ideas and get involved. We’d like to hear about:

  • Your use of new technology, gadgets and social media

  • Innovative approaches to promoting digital literacy and new technologies

Please let us know when you book what you’d like to talk about and be prepared to talk for around 5 minutes. Please email this to

FREE EVENT. Please bring your own lunch.

Plan for the day:


Arrival and coffee


Introduction to the day


Show and tell – if your library or information service is doing something different with technology or social media, now is your chance to show it off! Let us know in advance when you book if you’d like to get involved. Each slot is for five minutes.  There will be some kit for people to use but feel free to bring your own too.


Please bring your own lunch (there are some nearby food outlets but choice may be limited)


Breakout sessions. Opportunity to try out different technologies, get some hands on experience, engage in more detailed discussions, ask questions


Reflection and round up including: how can learning be used in the workplace and shared with colleagues?; sharing ideas for funding and partnership working opportunities; tips on keeping abreast of new technologies



We look forward to seeing you there!
