Exploring the new library and the new librarian

Celebrating the super-powered library and information professional is what this year’s ILI is all about, and a whole track is dedicated to exploring some of the strategies, structures, teams, skills, services and collaborations librarians around the world are using to ensure they stay at the cutting edge.

Liz McGettiganEchoing Kate Torney, our keynote speaker, Woman of Inspiration 2017 award winner and President of CILIP Scotland, Liz McGettigan (left), agrees that it’s time to be loud and proud: 

The librarian of the future thinks connections not collections! They love making a difference; they are proud and passionate about their work. Top tip: to hell with modesty, have a big loud voice and promote and sell what you do widely.”
