A network for new and aspiring library professionals
The organisers of Internet Librarian International have contacted us about an exciting opportunity for new professionals to get a taster of the conference for free!
6 new professionals will be chosen to attend the afternoon of the first day of the conference (16th October). We define a ‘new professional’ as a person who is studying for a LIS degree, working as a library graduate trainee or who graduated from a LIS degree within the last 5 years. If you are not currently working, but graduated within the last 5 years, please let us know where you studied.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact us by emailing email@example.com or DMing us on Twitter by midnight on Thursday 27th September. All we need to know is your name, affiliation (place of study or work) and email address. If you are not currently working, but graduated within the last 5 years, please let us know where you studied.
If we receive more than 6 expressions of interest, we will put all the names into a hat and draw 6 out. Successful applicants will be informed by Friday 28th September.
The sponsored place includes:
ILI’s ‘new professionals’ will be able to attend the whole of Day 1 of the conference, which will include a ‘taster session’ workshop specially for students and new professionals (from 14.30-15.30), and finishes with drinks from 17.30-18.30. The three conference tracks on Day 1 are:
The sponsored place covers the cost of the conference for the day, including tea/coffee breaks, lunch, and a drinks reception at the end of the day but sadly NOT travel expenses to the conference in London.
We’d love for the successful applicants to share their experiences on our blog, please let us know if you’d be willing to write a short report for us when you apply (this is not a requirement, we just want to know about your experience!)
