CILIPS Annual Conference 2009

This year’s conference will again take place in Peebles Hotel Hydro but with a fresh approach in terms of structure. On Tuesday 2nd June, two themed strands will run alongside the main programme – one with a school library focus and the other based on career development (developed in collaboration with the Scottish Division of the CILIP Career Development Group). The 2nd day retains the Branch/Group input traditionally associated with the last day of conference, with some additional slots to offer more variety. We are also pleased to be welcoming Jay Jordan, Chief Executive Officer of OCLC, as our keynote speaker on Wednesday.

For those who can’t make it to Peebles, the slides from the two days will be available on slideshare and via the Slainte digital library. We’re also looking at other options, including a live twitter feed, podcasting and vodcasting. The keynote sessions at the start of each day will be filmed and put online soon after they take place – still ironing out the details of how this will work so more details will follow shortly. Colleagues from the National Library of Scotland (NLS) are also planning a series of videocasts which we’re planning to post on YouTube.

If you are planning to attend in person, please remember that there’s only one week left for CILIP members to get the early bird discount. For more information or to book a place, please visit the website.
