CILIP’s Library and Information History Group is delighted to announce that its 2017 conference will be held at the University of Dundee on Saturday 1 July 2017. Librarians, researchers and academics are invited to submit proposals for full papers (45 minutes) or lightning talks (10 minutes) on the following themes:
– Public access to information in Scotland within the defined period.
– The publishing, distribution and reception of non-fiction and newspapers/periodicals.
– Knowledge institutions including (but not limited to) libraries, universities and intellectual societies.
– Any other topic of Library and Information History in Scotland within the defined period.
Please send abstracts of no more than 300 words accompanied by a short paragraph with biographical information to j.s.dye@stir.ac.uk by Wednesday 15 February.

Postgraduates and early career scholars are particularly welcome to submit proposals for lightning papers, which will be arranged into panels of 3-4 speakers as appropriate. Speakers will also be encouraged to submit papers for inclusion in the group’s journal, Library & Information History.

A full programme, including optional visits on the Friday afternoon before the conference, will be released when booking opens mid-March. A bursary to support student attendance will also be made available.

Further details will be added to our website as they are announced; http://www.cilip.org.uk/libraryinformation-history-group/events/2017-annual-conference-cilip-library-information-history-group
