A network for new and aspiring library professionals

#NLPNYH Get Career Ready

It’s almost two weeks since our last event in Sheffield – how time flies! Once again we would like to thank the CILIP Yorkshire & Humber Member Network, particularly Emily, for asking us to collaborate with them, Lisa and Darren, our member presenters (Holly, Lyn & Katherine) and all those who applied for this slot, the speed networkers (Amy, Daniel, Darren, Emily & Laura) and lastly everyone who came!

For those who missed the day we have created a storify which provides a summary of the day and also Emily and Jess have both written brilliant posts about the day which can be found here: &

Although the event was entitled “Get career ready” a lot could be gained from people who are not necessarily at the beginning of their career but those who are looking to change sector, become more proactive or looking to make their teaching more engaging! Our speed networking session proved to be a popular edition to our format and our member presentations are still a welcomed edition.

We have looked through the feedback (thanks to everyone who filled in an evaluation form) and are already thinking about our next event based on your suggestions.

Here are some links to some of the presentations delivered on the day:




The decision has been taken to not include all of the presentations because the slides would be meaningless without the context added in the delivery and also because of the platform used e.g. Nearpod, however, the storify should provide you with a summary of each presentation.
