The logo for the LILAC 2024 conference. The logo says 2024 Leeds but the number 0 is replaced with an image of an owl. A number of Leeds Beckett University’s constituent colleges at various times during their history featured the owl as their emblem, this included the City of Leeds Training College, the original occupants of Headingley Campus. Below 2024 Leeds it says LILAC: the information literacy conference. The logo is the colour lilac.

Publishing opportunity: LILAC conference reports in the Journal of Information Literacy (JIL)

Submitted by Meg Westbury, the Managing Editor of the Journal of Information Literacy (JIL).

Are you attending LILAC in April 2024

If so, please consider submitting a conference report to the Journal of Information Literacy (JIL). JIL publishes conference reports for many different IL conferences, and LILAC is always an important one to cover! Conference reports for JIL are about the length of a blog post (750-1500 words) and contain thoughts and reflections from attendees about the main points and themes of the conference. It’s up to you to decide what you focus on, and you could choose to focus on just one strand or theme of the conference if you wish.

Examples of conference reports

More information about conference reports is available via the JIL Submissions page and you can get a flavour of past conference reports by searching for ‘LILAC’ or ‘LOEX’ via this link.
