Digital Wednesdays

Digital Wednesdays are a range of sessions on various themes outside of our core selection of training. They may have a specialist focus, or they may just be plain out there! The only essential is that they're on a topic that's remotely digital. While our main digital skills sessions are run by Library and IT staff, Digital Wednesdays are often put on by guest speakers from elsewhere within the University.
