ARLIS invites you to Manchester

The ARLIS/UK and Ireland 45th Annual Conference will be held in the exciting city centre of Manchester, not far from the Peak District.  This year we are celebrating Art Librarianship with the theme, Reaching New Peaks: Onwards and Upwards.

Through a booming textile trade, Manchester earned the title of ‘Cottonopolis’ the world´s first industrialised city, now it is the UK’s third most visited city as visitors flock to take in the culture, architecture, sport, music scene and more.

During the Conference we will make the most of what this great historical city has to offer, with a varied programme celebrating recent achievements including digitisation, new buildings and visual archives. Join us as we visit the recently and beautifully refurbished Manchester Central Library and Archives+, go on walking tours and view the Special Collections of the University of Manchester and the Manchester Metropolitan University.

Other highlights will include a visit to and bespoke tour of Manchester Museum, dinner among the dinosaurs afterwards should not be missed!
