The Students & Trainees Committee is pleased to announce it will be holding the popular event 'An Introduction to Art and Design Reference Resources' at the Art Library, Leeds Central Library on Tuesday 1st May 2012. The workshop is for those new to the world of art librarianship, or those wishing to update their skills in art and design enquiry work. The day features presentations from leading art librarians, who will provide up-to-date information on the key print and electronic resources and strategies for effective research enquiry work.
