#lilac14 - some presentations and reports

The LILAC team has already put presentations and posters from the LILAC conference on Slideshare, with many there already. I will highlight a few I found on LILAC's Slideshare, plus a few other non-Slideshare items that I discovered myself.
1. The official LILAC 2014 conference page which the presentations etc.link from: http://www.lilacconference.com/WP/past-conferences/lilac-2014/

2. CILIP IL Group/LILAC Slideshare: http://www.slideshare.net/infolit_group

3. Alison Head's keynote, Truth Be Told: How Today’s Students Conduct Research, which got a lot of positive tweets: http://www.slideshare.net/infolit_group/truth-be-told-how-todays-students-conduct-research-keynote-alison-head

4. A couple of other Slideshares from the LILAC page (picked out because they caught my eye + there was enough text to tell what the presentation was about. Increasing numbers of presentations are rather enigmatic in themselves: it is great that people aren't crowding out their presentations with text nowadays, but having practically no text makes them less useful afterwards....)
- An ID&AL Loop - David Parkes and Alison Pope (about feedback and "better grade" events at Staffordshire University): http://www.slideshare.net/infolit_group/an-idal-loop-david-parkes-alison-pope
- Launching high school teaching support at the University of Oslo Science Library - Anders Mattias Lundmark and Jessica Lönn-Stensrud: http://www.slideshare.net/infolit_group/launching-high-school-teaching-support-at-the-university-of-oslo-science-library-anders-mattias-lundmark-jessica-lnnstensrud
- Between the sheets: the affordances and limitations of social reading tools and their potential role in developing critical and information literacy skills - Alison Sharman: http://www.slideshare.net/infolit_group/sharman-34170677
- Information literacy when there is no information: the case of rare and orphan diseases - Hannah Spring: http://www.slideshare.net/infolit_group/spring-34170376

5. A video from Andrew Walsh, related to his LILAC session, which gives definitions of play, games and gamification and examples of games and gamification in information literacy and libraries. Walsh, Andrew (2014) Playing with Information Literacy. http://eprints.hud.ac.uk/20022/

6. A blog post from Brian Kelly: Capturing the Conference Buzz: #LILAC14 as an Example http://ukwebfocus.wordpress.com/2014/04/28/capturing-the-conference-buzz-lilac14-as-an-example/ from whom I found out about :
