Our new 2021/22 trainees joined us on the 1st September and we have 13 trainees this year in total. We have 8 trainees based in our Bodleian Libraries, and 5 trainees based in our colleges. Last year was very different for our trainees due to the pandemic and so we are hoping normality will return for this year’s trainees. We held the Welcome session in person, albeit socially distanced and in masks, but it was great to meet everyone. We may still have to occasionally do sessions and work online, but the plan is for our trainees to be in our libraries helping our readers.
Our trainees will be introducing themselves on the trainee blog over the next week or two, so do follow their progress throughout the year. We wish them a happy and successful year with us in Oxford!
