LILAC 2018: Call for papers now open!

The LILAC Committee and CILIP Information Literacy Group are pleased to announce that the call for papers for the 2018 Librarians’ Information Literacy Annual Conference (LILAC) is now open.

LILAC logoLILAC 2018 will be taking place from 4th-6th April 2018 in Liverpool, and will be hosted jointly by librarians at The University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University.

LILAC welcomes proposals which address information literacy from all sectors and contexts. This year we have a brand new paper format – the Masterclass. This new format acts as a window into something that you do that works really well that you want to share with the rest of the LILAC 2018 delegates. Think of it as a Teachmeet with more time.

More information about all the paper types, including the LILAC Lagadothon and new Masterclass format can be found on the LILAC website.

Deadline for proposals:

Call for papers opens: 3rd October 2017
Call for papers closes: 15th November 2017
Final presentations to be submitted by 19 March 2018

To submit a paper, you will need to register for an account. If you already have an account, then you just need to login and go to ‘My account’, where you’ll see details of how to submit your abstract.

All proposals are blind refereed by our panel of reviewers.  Applicants will be notified by 22nd December 2017 if they have been successful or otherwise. If you have any queries, please contact
