Health Libraries Group Conference bursary offer!

The CILIP Health Libraries Group (HLG) is pleased to offer 8 HLG member bursary places and 4 student places to attend this year’s HLG conference to be held in Scarborough on 15 & 16 September. This will include:

· A complimentary place on both days of the conference

· The conference dinner

· £200 towards travel and accommodation, as required.

The HLG Committee is keen to support people who might not normally have the opportunity to attend the conference. Priority will be given to first time attendees, in particular newly qualified professionals and staff working in a non-professional role. The successful applicants will be expected to be active at the conference, for example by tweeting so that members unable to attend can follow and will be required to write about their experience for the HLG newsletter or website.

The terms and conditions for applying for the bursary places can be found here.
