CILIP’s Academic and Research Libraries Group (ARLG) provides a focus and forum for the professional concerns and interests of everyone working in academic (HE and FE) or research libraries.  The Yorkshire & Humberside regional committee plan and deliver informal professional development events at local universities and colleges: recent themes have included ‘Measuring Impact’, ‘Transition from FE to HE’ and ‘Things you wish you’d learned at Library School’.
