cpd25 is the Staff Development and Training programme of the M25 Consortium of Academic Libraries. cpd25 events are provided in the first instance for staff working in the member institutions of the M25 Consortium.
Applying to study Library and Information Science
Are you interested in studying Library and Information Science? This event brings together a range of speakers to inspire you and give you an insight into the experience of “going to Library School”.
At lunch time, there’s a course fair with opportunities to meet representatives from LIS courses. It’s a great networking opportunity with peers and other new professionals, and it’s your chance to get answers to all those burning questions about the whole process. It will be of particular interest to Graduate Trainees and anyone else who would like to become a librarian or information professional.
1030-1100 – Registration
1100–1300 – Morning session
Speakers will talk about why you should consider studying Library and Information Science, and what you can gain from the experience. This year’s speakers are:
Matthew Lawson – Head of Library & Learner Development, Middlesex University
Charles Inskip – UCL Dept of Information Studies
Ernesto Priego – Course Director, Library and Information Science, City University London
Stephen Pinfield – Programme Coordinator for MA Librarianship, Sheffield iSchool
1300–1430 – Lunch and Course Fair
Stalls from LIS courses, incliuding #citylis, and a chance to meet other delegates
1430–1615 – Afternoon session
Two recently qualified professionals will talk about their experiences after qualification. They will then join a panel of current and recent library school students, talking about their experiences and taking questions
Timings are approximate as an important aspect of this event is to allow delegates plenty of time to talk to speakers and course representatives – and each other! However the event will end no later than 16:15 with a final round up of the day and an opportunity for further questions.
