Bursaries

LILAC are pleased to offer bursaries for conference places to applicants in certain under-represented sectors and communities. Find out more about bursary opportunities here.

To have a truly engaging conference, we believe we need delegates who bring a variety of perspectives and backgrounds. The LILAC conference is therefore offering 5 free places for librarians working in the following under-represented sectors/communities in the UK:

  • BAME
  • Schools
  • Further Education
  • Public
  • Health (e.g. NHS – please note; librarians working in Higher Education who support health
    subjects are not eligible to apply)

The conference place includes 3 days attendance of all LILAC sessions, social events (networking evening and conference dinner) and accommodation at Cripps Hall. Travel expenses up to the value of £100 are also available if required.

To be eligible for a place you must be a librarian, volunteer or information professional working in the above mentioned sectors/communities in the UK. You will have to show your commitment to information literacy by writing a short personal statement explaining what benefits you would gain from attending the conference, and how you intend to use your conference experience in your work.

To apply, download a copy of the application form, and send it completed to help@lilacconference.com by 19th November (17:00 GMT).

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 papers 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!
