A look at ISLN dates for the next 10 months

A look-ahead at the upcoming (northern hemisphere) academic year, in terms of dates.

CORRECTION re location of Sep 13th meeting at AISS.  Not in the Senior Library, but in the Junior one (enter via Gate 3).

ISLN Network meetings
  • Thursday, September 13 @ AISS Junior Library
  • December @ SAIS
  • February @ OFS
  • April @ UWCSEA Dover (AGM)

NB: We rotate the day of the week for our network meetings, in fairness to people's other after-school commitments.  So the December, February, and April dates will be on a day of the week that suits the host librarian, but will not be on a Thursday.
