Here’s an update from WHELF, the Wales Higher Education Libraries Forum, written for this blog by Rachael Whitfield, the new WHELF development officer. Thanks Rachael!
WHELF has produced its Annual Report for 2012-2013 and it is now available online. It details the many events that have occurred within higher education libraries in Wales during the year and changes within the WHELF organisation itself with the appointment of a new chair and a new written constitution and strategy. The full report can be accessed on the WHELF blog and it is also available in Welsh from the website.
It looks to be an exciting year ahead too for WHELF with the project to procure an all-Wales shared library management system in higher education libraries, the National Library of Wales and NHS libraries. The project is progressing well and has just announced the publication of an EU notice and pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) for interested suppliers.
