The award (named in honour of former Information Literacy Group Vice Chair Rowena Macrae-Gibson) entitles two students to attend LILAC. It includes full conference registration, travel (within the UK only) and on-campus accommodation (see terms and conditions). The award is aimed at newly qualifying professionals. We welcome applications from full-time or part-time students (including distance-learners) registered for a UK-based first degree or taught postgraduate qualification in information / library studies or information literacy (IL). It is not essential that applicants are current members of CILIP or its Information Literacy Group. 

Present @ LILAC

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 presentations page to find out how to apply.

Places at this year's conference are likely to be in demand more than ever before. Each year our conference grows increasingly popular and this year promises to be no different. Don't miss out and book your place now for this year's conference.
We look forward to seeing you there!
