Congratulations to Niamh O’Donovan, winner of the MmIT bursary place for the CILIP Conference 2016. Niamh works for Galway Public Libraries in Ireland and is a new member of CILIP. Niamh will be using the CILIP Conference to strengthen her links with the CILIP community and in particular the MmIT group. You can find Niamh on twitter as @niamhodonovan. We look forward to welcoming Niamh to the CILIP Conference in July, and hope to meet many more of our members there too!

There is still time to take advantage of the Early Bird discount until Friday 29 April. The CILIP Conference takes place in Brighton from 12-13 July and will be one of the largest gatherings of library and information professionals in the UK. As well as a chance to network and discuss the latest developments in the sector, it is a great opportunity to refresh your CPD, update your skills and discover innovative products and services.


This year’s programme is the most exciting and ambitious yet. The leading international keynotes will look at the important role that libraries play in times of crisis, the social and economic value of data and information and the power of the written word to promote health and wellbeing. Our speaker programme is designed to deliver real, practical insights that you can apply in your own work, whichever part of the sector you work in and whatever your level of experience.

Some sessions that will be particularly tempting to our members are:
