The main theme for the two day event is ‘Libraries: Making a difference’ 

You can download the latest draft programme here.

Day 1 – Monday 3rd June, 2013

The first day of Conference offers highlights including Annie Mauger and Professor Peter Reid discussing the CILIP/CILIPS relationship and how we are working together after a period of change and reconstruction.  Marc Lambert offers a keynote session which sets the work of the Scottish Book Trust and the partnership with librarians in the context of literacy and reading levels in our country. Jens Thorhauge gives us an international perspective on the collection/connection debate while a set of stimulating parallel sessions presents delegates with a choice of seminars according to where their interest lies.

Day 2 – Tuesday 4th June, 2013

Highlights today include an opening keynote from Miranda McKearney, OBE, of the Reading Agency and two sets of parallel sessions designed to appeal to Branches and Groups . We have a reader development strand throughout the day’s programme and for this we’re delighted to be welcoming three speakers: Doug Belshaw, Jennifer Jones and Bethan Ruddock, as well as a spotlight session on a special service from Wendy Kirk of the Glasgow Women’s Library. Our final keynote of the Conference, Nick Davies, author of ‘How to be great at the stuff you hate’ is guaranteed to send you home with a smile on your face.

The CILIPS conferences always provide a great opportunity for us to meet new people and talk to our existing customers and business associates in the library world.  

We use these events as a platform to discuss and demonstrate the latest versions of our iCAM products and services together with our business strategies for the future.

This year there is a strong focus on consortia and collaborative working and how the models for sharing services can offer economies of scale and maximum service efficiencies.

We look forward to participating, so if you are attending then please come and say "hello!"
