T.U.G. News - January 2014

Linda Spinks presents the latest news from the User Group

We tell you

The next User Group meeting will be hosted by University of Cambridge in the new Information Services building on the West Cambridge site on 19th March 2014. I look forward to welcoming you to our great new building.

Education Group

Martin Fey at the University of Bristol has kindly agreed to host the next Education Special Interest Group meeting on 29th January 2014. This group is looking to discuss how it can be more useful to those involved. So if you work within an Educational institution, please consider attending to share your thoughts.

Engineering Group

I'm pleased to announce that Mark Hanson from Balfour Beatty Support Services has initiated a new group for Engineering customers to get together and discuss issues most relevant to their industry and working environments. We believe that some of our Defence/Manufacturing customers fall into this group based on the fact that they engineer and build products. So I'm sure similar issues around QHSE are encountered.

There has certainly been enough interest to hold an initial meeting, which Mark has kindly offered to host at his Sheffield site, and at this meeting the group will decide how often they wish to get together, the format of the future meetings and any other method of sharing ideas. It's all about what is going to help you in your roles.

I believe that there may be international customers that are also interested in joining the group, but unable to meet physically. So I'm sure alternative arrangements can be made for anyone who wishes to join in, whether it's by phone, web meeting or simply feeding in ideas and sharing via the User Group forum.
