What is Access Lab?

Access Lab is our international conference, which takes place each year in March. Over the past five years, libraries, providers and library users meet at our annual event to discuss challenges facing the information industry. The conference explores industry developments, provides real life case studies and holds topical panel discussions where you get the chance to ask the questions.
