Activities

CAVAL host a range of activities each year, including half-day forums, study tours, workshops and the annual CRIG Seminar. Many activities are free of charge, and held exclusively for staff of CAVAL's member libraries. Others are open to all.

Upcoming Activities

Our interest groups are busy planning a number of events for the remainder of 2024. Among them are a PDIG webinar (15 August, 2-3pm), a CSCN webinar (24 September, 2-3.30pm), and the annual CRIG Seminar. Registrations are now open for a library discovery tour to visit several libraries in Geelong on 19 June.
