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

Sponsorship will cover the cost of the LILAC Conference and social events. Accomodation and travel costs will be paid up to £225.

Please write a personal statement of 750 words (max) applying the selection criteria below:

  • How attending the conference will be useful/relevant to you
  • Your committment to Information Literacy
  • How you will disseminate knowledge gained at the conference when back in your workplace

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.

Book your place

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!
