CILIPS Conference 2010

May 26, 2010

Calling all Information Workers in Scotland!  Just a reminder (or an introduction if you weren’t aware) of the upcoming CILIPS (Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals in Scotland) conference.

It will be held in Glasgow at the Mitchell Library  from 7th to the 9th June.  There’s also Branch and Group day which runs concurrently on 9th June.

So you’re wondering what it is… well it’s a gathering of other people within the Information community.  There are 4 strands to the Conference / Branch and Group day: Learning for Life, Digital Futures, Curriculum for Excellence and Yes! We Can!

You can attend the sessions you’re interested in or just network with other attendees.  There’s also a marketplace where you can purchase library related items or even speak to someone from the Copyright Licensing Agency.

It may not seem like the conference fits with the voluntary sector roles we all hold but actually, there’s lots of speakers and topics that can have a direct bearing on the work we do!

I’d say if you’ve never been before, Branch and Group day is great experience! It’s good value for money (£45+VAT for CILIPS members or £52+VAT for non-member AND it includes lunch!) and it’s an opportunity to meet people with a similar interest.  Not to mention the fact that if we all attend, we’ll raise the profile of the voluntary sector within the Information sector.

I’m hoping to attend the Branch and Group Day so maybe I’ll see you there.

FYI – Registration closes on 2nd June!
