To be advised



ABTAPL usually meets twice a year. A day conference including a visit to a library in the specialisation is held in the Autumn, and there is a residential weekend held in the Spring. In recent years visits have been made to Durham, Edinburgh, Dublin, Salisbury, Birmingham, Winchester, Oxford and London. These occasions are valuable not only for seeing the wide variety of modern library practice in many different institutions, but also for the opportunities of meeting other librarians in the same specialisations. Such opportunities are highly regarded by our members, many of whom work in "one-person libraries" and are not otherwise able to widen their professional education. (Latest Notice of Meetings)
