Bursaries for #LILAC19

There are five bursaries available for the UK's LILAC (information literacy) conference in April 2019. They are aimed at places for applicants in certain under-represented sectors and communities, namely: BAME, Schools, Further Education, Public, Health (e.g. NHS; librarians working in Higher Education who support health subjects are not eligible). The bursary "includes 3 days attendance of all LILAC sessions, social events (networking evening and conference dinner) and accommodation at Cripps Hall. Travel expenses up to the value of £100 are also available if required. To be eligible for a place you must be a librarian, volunteer or information professional working in the above mentioned sectors/communities in the UK. You will have to show your commitment to information literacy by writing a short personal statement explaining what benefits you would gain from attending the conference, and how you intend to use your conference experience in your work." Deadline for applications is 19 November 2018, sent to More information and a form at
