LARIA in Scotland was established in 1993 to develop and deliver a programme of activities which promote the further development and understanding of local government R&I in Scotland and to represent the interests of LARIA’s Scottish members. It aims to:
- Maintain and develop a network of practitioners throughout Scotland
- Share knowledge and expertise among practitioners
- Promote good practice in R&I activity
- Raise the profile of information research throughout Scotland
- Establish links with appropriate organisations
- Promote the use of all forms of technology that will support these objectives
- Organise the Scottish conference and seminars and workshops appropriate to these objectives
LARIA in Scotland, chaired by Erin Murray, regularly hosts Listens events (LARIA in Scotland Training, Events + Networks Sessions). A group, listed below, help to organise these events which occur 2 or 3 times a year.
