Seminars are intended for para-professionals and those recently qualified or changing jobs. Each seminar is complete in itself – there is a slight overlap between the content of some seminars.

No prior knowledge is assumed.

Individuals in all branches of the information professions and beyond are regularly invited to seminars, usually of one day duration but occasionally half-day, on topics relating to official publications.

Exchange of experience and training seminars already held have covered a variety of topics ranging from an overview of sources of official publications to Parliamentary information, copyright, statistics, the census, on-line and government websites. Details of the current seminar programme may be obtained from the Seminars & Publications Secretary.
