Bursaries available to attend LILAC 2016

The CILIP Information Literacy Group is offering 4 free conference places at LILAC 2016 for librarians working in the Schools, Further Education, Public and Health sectors.

The Librarians’ Information Literacy Annual Conference (LILAC) will take place at University College Dublin on 21st-23rd March 2016, and is aimed at librarians and information professionals who teach information literacy skills, are interested in digital literacies and want to improve the information seeking and evaluation skills of library users.

Each conference place includes 3 days of attendance at all LILAC sessions and social events (networking evening and conference dinner). Accommodation and travel expenses up to the value of £250 are also available if required.

To be eligible for a place, you must be a librarian or information professional working in the above mentioned sectors in the UK or Ireland. You will have to demonstrate your commitment to information literacy by writing a short personal statement and explaining what benefits you would gain from attending the conference and how you intend to use your conference experience in your work.

Please note: librarians working in Higher Education who support health subjects are not eligible to apply for the Health sector bursary.

If you would like to be considered for a free conference place, then please complete the bursary application form (Word doc).
