Feature on RLUK Conference in CILIP Update

January 30th, 2009

As a second step in my campaign for media dominance, I’m mentioned in an article in this month’s (the January / February issue) of CILIP’s Library and Information Update. Hello to anyone who’s found their way here from the article – it’s on the RLUK (Research Libraries UK) Conference I attended back in October 2008 and here are the posts from the conference mentioned in the article.

Just to avoid / add to the confusion, the article’s got a teensy error in it: I’m actually a student with a PhD, rather than a PhD student – I’m currently studying for the MA in Librarianship at Sheffield, and my PhD was in Learning Sciences at Nottingham University. Still, nice that Update were so interested in our experiences as student attendees at the conference, and I hope this is a positive sign for RLUK continuing to offer student places at their future events.

    Hi Chris. Thanks for commenting, I’ve passed your message on to David – he certainly got a lot out of the session. After hearing his experiences I’m wishing I came too!
