LILAC is the Librarians’ Information Literacy Annual Conference and is a firm favourite in the calendar of information professionals. The conference is brimming with new ideas, innovative teaching techniques, inspiring speakers and exciting social events.
LILAC is great opportunity for our fellow professionals to present their ideas, share best practice and show case new thinking in our sector. If you have an idea then we’d love to hear about it. We have many options for the types of sessions you might run from a symposium to a workshop. Visit our Call for papers page to find out how to apply.
LILAC is organised by CILIP’s Information Literacy Group and 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 all our library users whoever they may be.
Librarians from across the UK and around the world attend LILAC. Delegates come to us from over 30 different countries worldwide. Each year we attract significant key players in the information literacy field as keynote speakers from around the globe.
One of the great aspects of the conference is opportunity it presents to connect with fellow professionals. Catching up with old friends and colleagues or making exciting new contacts. LILAC offers plenty of ways for connecting at specific networking sessions or our conference dinner.
