LATEST NEWS: We are delighted to announce that Samira Ahmed, Journalist and Broadcaster, Presenter Radio 4’s Front Row and BBC1’s Newswatch will be our opening keynote on Thursday 5th July. Samira is exploring the impact on Britain’s record keeping and sense of national identity of a decade of austerity budget cuts, management policies about data protection and library closures, that might lie beneath some of the news headlines.
Samira will be joined by Penny Young, House of Commons and Sally Walker, Scotland’s Library and Information Professional of the Year who will be opening the conference showcasing the best of British Librarianship. They will be followed by John Chrastka and Patrick Sweeney of EveryLibrary talking about their ground-breaking work in the United States. Find out more about all our keynotes.
The CILIP Conference is the annual flagship event for the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals and one of the biggest events in the calendar for UK library and information professionals. The conference brings together library, knowledge and information professionals from all sectors of our profession from the UK and overseas, to meet, learn and share knowledge. It’s a great chance to catch up with colleagues and make new connections.
