….a few of the library conferences to be seen, and to see us, at!
We started the library conference season off with a visit to Manchester for the LILAC Conference. In April we are supporting Brendan our Irish representative as we attend the LAI/CILIP Joint Conference before we return to sponsor the Further and Higher Education Conference in Warwick.
Looking forward to a hot sunny summer we will be in Scotland with CILIPS, Ireland with Sconul and back to Manchester for Umbrella 2013 with CILIP. We’ll update you as we add more events to our diary.
The University of Manchester Library, 25th-27th March
LILAC is the Librarians’ Information Literacy Annual Conference, a firm favourite in the calendar for information professionals. The conference is always brimming with new ideas, innovative teaching techniques, inspiring speakers and exciting social events.
Croke Park Conference Centre, 10th -11th April
Sessions on the forthcoming development plan for public libraries, on ebooks in libraries, on the funding of libraries now and in the future, on the challenges facing the profession and much more the conference will have something of interest to librarians from all sectors.
The Hilton, Warwick, 13th-14th May
This year our conference focuses on improving the student experience. Following the increase in HE tuition fees, recent changes to FE funding and the forthcoming introduction of FE loans, delivering a student experience that helps attract and retain students has never been more important.
Apex City Quay Hotel, 3rd-4th June
An exciting opportunity to hear well respected keynote speakers, engage in topical debate and network with colleagues and thought leaders. Parallel sessions will also present delegates with a choice of stimulating seminars according to where their interest lies.
