BDS Director of Library Sales, Sarah Armitage, is back on the road visiting library services around the UK.
“It feels great to meet people in real life once again,” says Sarah. “Virtual meetings have proved invaluable in maintaining contact and ensuring services remain at optimal levels throughout the pandemic. However, nothing can replace seeing customers in their own working environments.”
Sarah recently visited East Sussex Libraries. There she met with Chris Desmond and Sara Leonard (see photo).
“You don’t get meetings like the one with Chris and Sara over Zoom,” continued Sarah. “It gave us the opportunity to explore options for service enhancements in a much more practical, real-world manner as we move into new library environments post-pandemic.”
“It is great to have BDS continuing to supply quality records as we try and manage stock for new social distancing libraries,” says Chris Desmond.
Sarah is keen to meet customers and potential new clients interested in BDS’s services to libraries.
“Now, more than ever, we realise what can be achieved face to face as we exit this pandemic,” says Sarah. “As we look for ways to work together and enhance services to the public in a safe manner, I want libraries to know that BDS is here to meet with and talk to.”
