RLUK holds a number of events each year, for our members, and for the wider community.

Our annual conference is held in the Spring and brings together the leading thought leaders and decision makers in the UK research library community. The conference is open to RLUK members, non-members, and colleagues from across the research sectors in the UK and beyond. Full details can be found on the conference website.

We also manage and curate the DCDC Conference (Discovering Collections, Discovering Communities) in partnership with The National Archives. DCDC brings together colleagues from across the heritage, cultural and academic sectors and encourages cross-sector, inter-disciplinary, collaboration. Its overarching aims are to bridge sectoral and disciplinary divisions, challenge perceived barriers to co-operation, and to act as a conduit of collaboration. Reflecting these aims, DCDC brings together hundreds of delegates, drawn from right across the cultural, heritage and academic sectors. Full details can be found on the DCDC conference website.
