A network for new and aspiring library professionals

Call for papers – NLPN OPEN

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.

With that aim in mind we have included in our recent events an opportunity for new and early career professionals to present on a topic of their choice. For inspiration, you might look to a work project, a dissertation topic or a personal project. Previous presentations have covered topics such as setting up a research support service in a newly-created role, the LISDIS conference and how to use Raspberry Pi to create a Pirate Box/Library Box.

Our next event, NLPN OPEN, sponsored by LM Information Delivery, and taking place on Saturday 4th June in Manchester city centre  will include space in the programme for four 10 minute presentations.


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 to 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 and submissions are welcome from groups as well as individuals.

If any of these apply: submit a PowerPoint (or similar) presentation, complete with notes to by Wednesday 25th May. We will notify all applicants and issue the full event line up by Friday 27th May. Please contact us on Twitter or by email if you’d like to discuss an idea before submitting a presentation.
