IS Oxford Open Days

"An awesome day, a great environment, amazing staff and lunch – already looking to the next one!!

Ian Harbour, The College of West Anglia (Oct 2016)

We have been hosting regular Open Days since 2009. They are a great opportunity to meet IS Oxford staff, look at latest developments in Heritage Cirqa and visit some notable sites in Oxford city centre. In short, a great day out!

This year we will be taking some of the content of our Open Days out on the road around the UK. Further details can be found on the Regional Events page.  

"It was lovely to meet you and the rest of the team at the open day last week. I hadn’t anticipated enjoying a day dedicated to the intricacies of a library system so much – it was really relaxed, great hospitality and I met some very nice Heritage customers too. Long after I’ve forgotten about ‘lost on loan’, I’ll remember that amazing lunch!"

Helen Bradley, All Hallows College (Aug 2013)

"As always, the organisation of the event was superb, with an informative morning session (we are in the process of upgrading to 5.1A and 3.6 right now!), excellent refreshments, and the wonderful trip to the Bodleian. I had never visited before, and have always wanted to go there; the guide was lovely, and the tour a worthwhile treat. Such consideration of your customers helps explain the loyalty of so many Heritage customers, including us!"

Emma Casey, Farnborough Sixth Form College (Oct 2014)

What about Open Days in 2020?


We can't run our usual Open Days this year so we’re going to do our best to deliver a similar experience virtually.

The good news is that online events are more available to our users from further afield, including our international Heritage Cirqa users, where travel to an Oxford event has always been out of the question.

We can’t offer you one of Craig’s delicious lunches, but we are going to do our best to bring you some useful sessions. As usual it is all completely free of charge.

Our next Virtual event will be our Christmas Lectures in December.


How do I register?

Heritage Cirqa users can register on our Christmas Lectures page. If you don't use Heritage Cirqa but are interested in viewing the sessions please email Emma Duffield at and she can arrange access.

We hope to see lots of you there!
