A network for new and aspiring library professionals

Call for papers

The ethos of NLPN is to create a network for new and future library professionals, a network where, collectively, we can explore and develop our knowledge and practical skills in key areas of the information sector. After the success of the first call for papers where we received presentations on varied topics such as starting a library society at university to moving library spaces in your first professional post, ourselves and CILIP Yorkshire & Humberside have decided to issue a call again for three speakers to share knowledge on a library issue they are passionate about. This is an exciting opportunity to gain some experience in presenting at an event and would look great for CVs (hint hint!!). The presentations will be 10 minutes, and delivered at our collaborative event with CILIP Yorkshire & Humberside on 21st March 2015 in Sheffield.


The criteria:

  • Are you passionate and knowledgeable about an aspect of Library and Information work that would be of interest to early career professionals?
  • Do you have experience of working on a project that has enhanced your insight or practical abilities that would be of value to new professionals?
  • Do you have practical tips to impart about how you have developed your skills or expertise?
  • Have you contributed or been part of innovative service development in your workplace?
  • Do you have practical advice to offer from your career trajectory to date?
  • This opportunity is open to everyone

If any of these apply: Submit a PowerPoint (or similar) presentation, complete with notes to The NLPN team need to receive presentations by Monday 16th February. We will notify all applicants and issue the full event line up the following Monday (23rd February). Please contact us on twitter or by email if you’d like to discuss an idea before submitting a presentation. 1lDvReZ22AGdoEQ0u0tlsA
