Aston Logo 2019 WebThis year's joint SLA and CILIP YLG weekend course - "Building Identity, Building Readers" is this weekend -  21 to 23 June 2019 at the Aston Conference Centre, Aston University, Birmingham.

It has been very popular and is completely sold out. For more information please see the 2019 Weekend Course page. 

Everyone has been notified of their place with all details about booking in, including reserving car parking. If you have been so busy, (helping students!) you've not managed to read it, parking at the conference centre is now booked up. However, you are able to park in the nearby Millennium Point car park, B4 7AP. Please don't worry if you have not yet received your invoice. You still have a place!
