What you need to know

Recording high-profile lectures and events

The University has a number of teams which can provide assistance with the recording of high-profile events on one of its campuses. This includes both the Learning Content Team (within the Libraries' Learning Technology section) and colleagues based within External Relations.

To ensure sufficient time for preparation and planning, it is recommended that contact is made with one or both teams during the initial planning stages of your event.
