Deputies and Directors Groups


The SCONUL community has a number of groups for directors and deputy directors who come together to share experience and learn from each other in an informal way. These provide a source of informal support and advice virtually and through face to face meetings. In general, groups meet once or twice a year and have between twelve and twenty members. Groups have their own lists and discussions are generally assumed to be confidential unless otherwise agreed. The SCONUL Office facilitates the group’s first meeting, after which, the groups are expected to self-organise.  

The SCONUL office facilitates the creation of new groups for new heads of service and deputies. If you're not already involved in one of these groups and would like to be, please register your interest by emailing
