Standing Conference of National and University Libraries


Gillian Pentelow


The new SCONUL has been formed to represent the interests of the institutions formerly members of the old SCONUL and COPOL. An Executive Board carries out the policy making, legal and financial responsibilities, whilst work on special topics is undertaken by Advisory Committees and Panels. Of prime importance is the lobbying role and its is through representing its member institutions on professional committees and joint working parties with other professional and related bodies, that the new SCONUL aims to emulate the successes of its predecessors. As the new organisation begins its work in support of academic librarianship, the traditions of both the former organisations will be maintained, notably in the new publications programme, the study tours and its close involvement in the changing information scene.
