Interlend 2018: Shaping the future together.

The theme for Interlend 2018 centres on the changes affecting  interlending practices and behaviour and how we can meet expectations and challenges in the future bearing in mind technical advances, the move to more e-books;  inclusive practices; collaborative innovations and reduced copyright restrictions.

As the premier UK inter-lending community conference, Interlend annually attracts around 60-80 interlending staff from all levels of seniority, although it should be noted that a large proportion of our delegates are inter-lending practitioners library assistants rather than professional grades.  They come from all walks of library sphere, primarily UK based and with perhaps more from HE/FE and Public Libraries than any other sectors.
Interlend is also renowned as offering our delegates practical tips and guidance, as well as broadening their understanding of the world of interlending.
