Feedback from October's webinar: "This UKSG session was GREAT. The speaker was knowledgeable and clear; I learned a lot, took a lot of notes on related literature to read later, and was really inspired to think about the topic from a different perspective." - Erin Cassidy, Sam Houston State University; 98% of survey respondents would recommend October's webinar.

Thank you for your attention and your support of UKSG webinars throughout the year. Season's greetings!
