One of the best I have been on in terms of relevance and practicality.

An excellent course, content was very well targeted and will be very useful in daily work. Everything was presented in a very clear way and being able to participate on my own computer really helped my understanding. The notes are also brilliant to take away.

Both immensely enjoyable and informative.

The fact that both presenters had a library background made it very useful it felt like they knew how we feel in a work situation.
