ARLIS/UK & Ireland 2020 Conference postponed.

 
In the light of the increasingly serious threat posed by the Coronavirus, and the uncertainty of how things will develop in the UK and elsewhere in the next few months, you will probably not be surprised to hear that we are sadly announcing the postponement of the ARLIS/ UK & Ireland 2020 Conference that was due to be held in Cambridge in July 2020.
 
Thank you to those who have shown interest in the Conference thus far, and we hope to see as many of you as possible at the postponed ARLIS 2020 Conference, which will be in early to mid-July 2021 at the same venue, Murray Edwards College, Cambridge University . We hope to be able to confirm the exact dates for this very soon, and will notify you of these when we do so.
 
The Conference Working Party is looking forward to building on the work we’ve already accomplished to plan an exciting, stimulating and interesting event in a stunning location, and we are hoping that, like a phoenix from the ashes, the 2021 ARLIS conference will offer an opportunity to rebuild our networks of professional activities and commitment in art and design libraries after a dark period, albeit in a context which may of course be very different in July 2021.
 
Watch this space for more details of the 2021 conference in the Autumn, when we will be announcing further plans for papers and inviting you to attend..
 
With all good wishes for a safe and healthy 2020 for you and your families and friends.
