The CILIP Conference is returning to Brighton this July with a fantastic line-up of keynote speakers, thought provoking seminars and essential workshops. Meet like-minded colleagues and make new connections for two days of knowledge sharing, discussion, debate and networking opportunities. The conference aims to leave you feeling inspired and passionate about the work that we do as professionals. To keep up to date on conference developments, follow @CILIPConf18 and #CILIPConf18 and visit the website cilipconference.org.uk. You can also register for the conference. Don’t worry – if you receive a bursary place, CILIP will refund you.
The Government Information Group (GIG) is delighted to be able to offer two bursary places to its members for attendance at the conference:
• the first bursary is offered by CILIP in recognition of GIG’s involvement with the conference;
• the second is being funded by GIG itself.
We particularly welcome applications from GIG members who have not previously attended the conference.
Applications close on Friday 13 April.
After a successful visit to the National Art Library GIG has another visit planned in April to the University of Liverpool Special Collection and Archives on Friday 20th April. The University of Liverpool Library’s Special Collections & Archives is home to manuscripts and archives, medieval to modern; early and finely printed books, and science fiction collections. The visit will include a talk by Jenny Higham, Special Collections & Archives Manager, on the collections and the service, followed by an opportunity to view a selection of items, as well as the current exhibition.
To register for a place go to Events on the CILIP GIG Website.
Please note GIG visits are open only to members of the Government Information Group and full CILIP members. GIG visits are not open to the public.
