Community of Interest Groups

SCONUL is pleased to announce that we are launching four new community of interest groups in September 2025.

These will be on:

  • Academic Libraries and learning technologies: for those managing learning technologists and those interested in developing in this area.
  • AI and information literacy: for those leading on the provision of advice to library users of AI tools and techniques.
  • Library analytics: for those with an interest in exploring the use of library data and analytics for service improvement.
  • The Future of the Systems Librarian: for those interested in exploring the role of the systems librarian in supporting the evolving needs of the library and looking at challenges around recruitment and succession planning as the systems themselves continue to evolve.

There will be an opportunity for those who have not already expressed an interest in being involved to do so shortly.  In the meantime, if you have any further questions, please contact

We anticipate delivering a further CIG on Higher-level apprenticeships  once the development of a Level 7 apprenticeship in the Library and Information sector is further advanced, in 2025.
