The lovely folks over at Internet Librarians International are keen to give new or aspiring LIS professionals the chance to attend a large international conference. They’ve given us a number of sponsored places for students and new professionals to attend a conference taster day in London on the 17th October 2017.
The sponsored places are available to graduate trainees, LIS students and ‘new professionals’ who have qualified within the last 5 years. If you’d like a place all you need to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Thursday 28th September 2017. Please include your name, what you are currently doing (whether that be work and/or study), and the name of the organisation you work/study at. We’ll then drawn names out of a hat to decide the winners!
The day will start with a ILI taster session specifically for students and new professionals keen to understand what it means to be an information professional in the world today. Taster session attendees will then join ILI conference delegates for lunch, and can join any ILI conference sessions for the afternoon, finishing by attending the ILI drinks reception from 17.30-18.30. The three afternoon tracks are ‘The New Library, the New Librarian’; ‘Users, UX and Usage’ and ‘Content Creativity’. You can see the full conference programme here.
Please note that these sponsored places include the cost of the conference for the day, including tea/coffee breaks, lunch, and a drinks reception at the end of the day, but unfortunately do not include travel.
