CILIPS Autumn Gathering a huge success for second year running

CILIPS returned to Dunfermline’s Carnegie Conference Centre for our second annual Autumn Gathering held there on October 12th.

We welcomed over 100 delegates from across Scotland (and beyond) who enjoyed a packed programme designed and delivered by CILIPS in partnership with our Branches, Groups and Regional Groups.

Delegates received presentations from Alex Linkston, Jean Inness, Beverley Casebow and Alice Heywood, Stuart Dempster, Charlie Fletcher, Pauline Randall,  Gavin Oattes and the Career Development Group Scotland.  All the presentations from the day are available here.  

We had great support from our exhibitors – 3M, 2CQR, Alexander Street Press, Bolinda Digital and Bright Books Gale, OCLC, Oxford University Press and PTFS Europe . Members of CILIPS Central Branch  provided assistance and support throughout the day.

Our prize draw of a Kindle e-book reader was won by Philip Wark from Midlothian Libraries. We also gave away two bottles of champagne and a copy of new Facet publication: Getting started with cloud computing.

Lots of photos were taken on the day and you can view these here.

Feedback from delegates was overwhelmingly positive and as ever, the Planning Team will use all comments and suggestions to inform next year’s event.  See you there!
