CILIP Conference (5-6 July, Manchester) is a highlight of the professional calendar for library and information professionals in the UK, and this year the Information School is delighted to award bursaries for six postgraduate students to attend the conference and share their experiences. Our bursary award-winners are:
- Hannah Beckitt – MA Library and Information Services Management
- Erica Brown – MA Digital Library Management
- Jaimee McRoberts – MA Library and Information Services Management
- Itzelle Medina – PhD (and previous MA Librarianship student)
- Lucy Sinclair – MA Librarianship
- Louise Wasson – MA Library and Information Services Management
All are looking forward to making the most of the conference programme, including excellent keynotes by Carla Hayden, the Librarian of Congress, and Luciano Floridi of the Oxford Internet Institute, and the Your Career track, which is sponsored by the Information School. Watch out for tweets and blog posts from our students about their conference journey via @InfoSchoolSheff.
Information School Lecturer, Paula Goodale, will also be managing an exhibition stand throughout the conference. Drop by stand no.19 to find out about our exciting range of CILIP-accredited PGT courses (campus and distance learning options), and to explore opportunities for PhD research. Our students representatives will also be there so you can find out what it’s really like to study with us!
On Conference Day Two (July 6th) we will also be hosting a careers breakfast seminar, with a focus on networking for new and early career professionals. Everyone is welcome, no matter what your career stage, and Sheffield alumni are especially welcome, as we’d love to catch up with what you’ve been up to since graduating with us.
