Background

LILAC is organised by CILIP’s Information Literacy Group. The LILAC committee is made up of a team of information professionals from all aspects of library and information work who are dedicated to improving information literacy.

The conference offers delegates the opportunity to share knowledge, be inspired and to make those all important contacts. To this end, the LILAC committee puts together an exciting programme of keynote speakers, social events and parallel sessions including long and short papers, hands-on workshops, symposiums and poster presentations.

We actively encourage practitioners and researchers to present at LILAC. Many of our speakers are new to conference presentations when they come to LILAC and find that it is a fantastic and supportive environment to make their first foray into the world of presenting.

Presenters at LILAC are also encouraged to submit their papers to the Journal of Information Literacy.
