The School Library Association Manchester Branch present a
School Library Management System (LMS) Showcase

Date: Wednesday 2nd May 2018
Time: Twilight meeting 4 - 6pm come along when you can.
Venue: Chorlton High School, Nell Lane, Chorlton, Manchester M21 7SL

Refreshments will be available.
Hosted by Rachel Hockey (Library Resource Manager at Chorlton High School & SLA Manchester Branch Hon Treasurer)
Intended audience: School Library staff from the Greater Manchester area.
An opportunity to meet the suppliers of your library management system and investigate alternatives and relative newcomers on the market. There will be presentations and display stands but no “hard sell”. This is not a user forum but you will be able to raise questions with representatives and organise follow-up contacts for your schools. You are welcome to bring colleagues from your school.
Followed by “networking over a pizza” at Croma Chorlton from 6.30pm.
Please confirm attendance by email to Rachel Hockey
r.hockey[at]chorltonhigh.manchester.sch.uk by Monday 30th April.
Please let Rachel know if you would like to join us at Croma Chorlton after this meeting.

We are a branch of the School Library Association but please note that your school does not need to be a member of the SLA for you to attend our meetings (although preferential rates apply if there is a charge for an event).
