  1. Purpose of the Events Calendar

  The LIHNN website includes a calendar of events at . LIHNN members will be able to
  check what events are coming up in the North West and nationally.
  This will prove particularly useful when LIHNN Groups and HCLU are
  trying to arrange future events so that we can try and distribute events
  more evenly over the year and reduce meeting date clashes.

  2. How the Event Calendar is Created

  The website allows anyone to complete the “Add Event” form and then
  submit it to HCLU. The event is authorised and will appear on the event

  There are several categories of event currently on the calendar and
  these can be added to if required. An event can only be assigned to
  one category.

  4. Conventions used on the Calendar

  a) LIHNN Meetings

  Task and Special Interest Groups
  Start the event name with LIHNN, follow it with the name of the group
  and then add meeting/workshop/seminar/away day as appropriate
  e.g. LIHNN E-Resources Group Meeting

  Main Patch Groups
  These do not need the word LIHNN in front of the name but should
  take the following format:
  i.e.     Cheshire & Merseyside Librarians Meeting
           Cumbria and Lancashire Librarians Meeting
           Greater Manchester Librarians Meeting

  b) Events requiring completion of a booking form

  The “Training Events” category has an inbuilt booking form that is e-
  mailed to Andrea Guest and Shân Annis when it has been completed.
  Consequently, if you need to use a booking form you should assign
  “training Event” as the category.

  This means that events such as “HCLU New Starters”, “LIHNN-HCLU
  Briefings”, “NHS Library Managers” will all appear as training events
  rather than HCLU or LIHNN meetings.

  c) Accreditation visits

  These take the format of:
  Event Title: Accreditation of (name of Trust) library service
  Event Detail: Name (of assessor one), name (of assessor two) and
                name (of assessor three) will accredit the library service.

  5. Searching the Events Calendar

  The Events Calendar has a search facility at

  You can search by a keyword from the event title or search for an
  event between two dates.
