Address to the Conference

Deputy Minister for Culture, Tourism and Sport, Lord Dafydd Elis-Thomas

Lord Elis-Thomas, the Deputy Minister for Culture, Tourism and Sport in Wales is looking forward to addressing library staff from across Wales at the annual CILIP Cymru Wales conference, he said: “I have had the pleasure of visiting six local libraries across Wales and have been impressed with the quality of services and the enthusiasm of staff on my visits. Following investment from the Welsh Government, I’ve seen excellent examples where Libraries have been co-located with other public services and cultural facilities which helps to create a greater sense of community spirit – as we have seen in Glan yr Afon in Haverfordwest and Pyle Library for example. Our Libraries and staff are doing an excellent work in adapting to changes in society and technology – and I look forward to hearing more at the conference.



Keynote: The Future Conversations of Libraries; Collaboration, Engagement, Partnerships and Digital Reach

Simon Savidge

People often see commercialisation as a dirty word, however with budgets being cut across councils and services it is becoming something which more and more services are needing to create commercial strategies and partnerships for. But where to start? How do make sure services keep their statutory function? And how can it benefit libraries in ways other than just cash?

Simon Savidge, avid reader and book addict as well as Commercial Manager for Liverpool Libraries, will talk us through how he is commercialising Liverpool’s library service, how you attract partners and how these partnerships can benefit the service, its users and staff whilst bringing in a whole new audience and footfall into our wonderful spaces.



Reading Well Books on Prescription Wales: Libraries and Bibliotherapy

Professor Neil Frude and Nicola Pitman

We know that books can raise spirits and calm us down. Certain forms of psychological therapy can be successful and cost-effective when delivered via self-help ‘manuals’; otherwise known as ‘bibliotherapy’. For maximum impact, bibliotherapy requires extensive reach, made possible through well-supported library schemes. Reading Well Books on Prescription launched in every authority in Wales in 2018, providing accredited reading to support health and wellbeing. It includes an extensive range of specialist books in Welsh and English for the first time. This talk will examine the rollout of Reading Well for dementia, the launch of Reading Well for mental health, and the future impact of social prescribing and bibliotherapy.



Iaith, llên, llyfrgell: datblygu rhaglen llythrennedd gwybodaeth i fyfyrwyr y Gymraeg ac Astudiaethau Celtaidd ym Mhrifysgol Aberystwyth

Lessons from 15 Years of Collaboration between the Library and the Politics Department at Cardiff University

Dr Stephen Thornton

This paper will explore aspects of a fifteen year collaboration between the Department of Politics at Cardiff University (latterly, the Department of Politics and International Relations) and Cardiff University Libraries to encourage awareness of information literacy amongst students (and staff). This will include drawing connections between the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) subject benchmark statements for Politics and IR and competencies identified in a widely recognised information literacy framework. At the heart of this paper will be a comparison between the results of two surveys - one from 2009 and another from 2017 - designed to explore students' information behaviours on entering university.



Chartership for Knowledge Management - Why CILIP? Why now?

Sonia Ramdhian

Come and find out about CILIP’s new Chartership for Knowledge Management. This session will provide an overview of

  • why CILIP has developed Chartership specifically for KM
  • what will be required of candidates
  • what employers can expect from a Chartered Knowledge Manager
  • CILIP’s future plans for professional registration for KM’ers



Keynote: Picking out trends in the library life in Finland

Tiina Heino

In this changing world, the library is luckily changing, too. In my presentation, I contribute with topics such open science, user education, artificial intelligence, visibility services for scholars’ publications and altmetrics; how these things are in workflow at the Helsinki University Library and its medical library Meilahti Campus Library Terkko. It is important to involve and listen to our customers when planning and designing library services and to integrate library into the community and build relationships. Let’s keep the library life proactively alive and library staff professionally nourished and continuously developing their professional skills.



Plant Cymru a’u Llyfrau / Welsh Children and their Books

Dr Siwan M. Rosser

Mae denu plant at straeon yn rhan hanfodol o unrhyw ddiwylliant bywiog, ffyniannus. Gan ystyried y newidiadau arfaethedig i’r cwricwlwm addysg ac ymrwymiad Llywodraeth Cymru i ehangu’r Gymraeg er lles cenedlaethau’r dyfodol, mae sicrhau cnwd o straeon hygyrch wedi eu gwreiddio ym mhrofiad darllenwyr ifainc yn allweddol. Bydd y cyflwyniad hwn yn rhannu canfyddiadau fy ngwaith ymchwil ar lyfrau Cymraeg i blant a phobl ifanc a gomisiynwyd gan Gyngor Llyfrau Cymru yn 2016-17. Bydd yn cynnig trosolwg o’r diwydiant llyfrau plant ar hyn o bryd, ac yn amlinellu sut y gallai cynyddu amrywiaeth ac amlygrwydd llyfrau ddenu rhagor o’n darllenwyr ifainc i ymwneud â’r iaith a’i diwylliant.

Engaging children with stories is a vital feature of any vibrant and thriving culture. Considering the upcoming changes to the curriculum and the Welsh Government’s commitment to enhance the language and culture of Wales for the wellbeing of future generations, offering young readers a range of diverse, accessible stories grounded in their own experience is fundamental. This presentation will share the finding of my research on Welsh language books for children and young adults, commissioned by the Welsh Books Council in 2016-17. It will offer an overview of current trends in Welsh language children’s publishing and outline how increasing the diversity and visibility of books can attract more of our young readers to engage with the language and its culture.



Innovative Outreach. Promoting Special Collections at Bangor University

Shan Robinson

My talk will feature some of the outreach and promotional projects undertaken by the Library and Archive Service at Bangor University. These projects and activities fulfil our commitment to providing quality outreach work which opens doors between the University and the community at large. In the past few years we have completed a number of new and novel projects which have been designed to showcase the collections and offer original context in which to present the collections to the public. This led to Bangor Library and Archive Service shortlisted for a prestigious Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Award (THELMA) for their outreach and community engagement work in 2017. As well as bringing Town and Gown together, these projects also provide an opportunity for Bangor students to volunteer and win employability credits working alongside specialists form various agencies. From a University standpoint the aim is to encourage the public to be comfortable in the University setting and raise learning aspirations of individuals of all age.



Health Literacy at North East London Foundation Trust (NELFT)

Catherine Jenkins

Improving health literacy levels can enhance treatment outcomes, save time and cut costs. At NELFT, we are undertaking a pilot project to improve the health literacy of staff, patients and the wider communities we serve. We have partnered with local libraries and the Reading Agency to run high-street health information drop-ins. These events raise awareness of the evidence-based Reading Well book collections and signpost members of the public to accessible, peer-reviewed digital resources like the NHS app and the NHS ‘Behind the Headlines’ health news analysis. Future aims of the project include a health literacy e-learning module and reflective workshops.

O enau’r plant bychain: effaith Dechrau Da ar blant bach a’u hoedolion/From the mouths of babies: the effect of Bookstart on young children and their grown-ups

Bethan Hughes

Eleni mae’r cynllun dwyieithog Dechrau Da yn ugain oed. Mae’n bartneriaeth rhwng llyfrgelloedd cyhoeddus Cymru, Booktrust Cymru, ac ymwelwyr iechyd y GIG, gyda chefnogaeth ariannol Llywodraeth Cymru. Mae’r cynllun craidd yn cyflwyno rhodd o lyfrau ac anogaeth i ddefnyddio’r llyfrgell, i bob plentyn yng Nghymru, er mwyn cefnogi’r rhieni fel addysgwyr cyntaf eu plentyn trwy gyfrwng rhigymau, caneuon a rhannu llyfrau. Yn Sir Ddinbych, atgyfnerthir y cynllun craidd gyda rhaglen o Amser Rhigwm mewn llyfrgelloedd a bydd y cyflwyniad yn crynhoi tystiolaeth o effaith y cynllun mewn dau faes - cyflwyno’r Gymraeg i deuluoedd, a’r effaith ar lesiant y rhieni.

This year the bilingual Bookstart scheme in Wales is twenty years old. It is a partnership between Welsh public libraries, Booktrust Cymru, and NHS health visitors, supported by Welsh Government. The universal scheme gifts books and encouragement to use the library to every child in Wales, to support parents as their child’s first educator through rhymes, songs and sharing books. In Denbighshire the core scheme is enhanced by a programme of Rhymetimes in libraries, and the presentation will present evidence of the scheme’s impact in two areas – introducing the Welsh language to families, and the effects on parental mental health and wellbeing.



Define and Design your Impact

Dr Dafydd Tudur

This practical workshop will guide participants through the first part of Europeana’s Impact Playbook, introducing processes and tools that can be applied within their own contexts. Topics will include identifying and understanding stakeholders, strategic perspectives, value lenses and impact areas. The main part of the workshop will focus on the Change Pathway Canvas. Working in groups, participants will place their own example projects on the Canvas and discuss the difference between outputs and outcomes, attributing outcomes to activities, and how to measure their impact.



Global Wales: Experiences in International Partnerships

Erika Gavillet and Lori Havard

Have you ever been interested in starting a partnership with a library in another country? Does your library currently engage in an international partnership? Join Erika and Lori in an informal discussions of the benefits and challenges of pursuing these mutually benefiting connections. Get tips on how to start, or share best practice with others on how to get the best from your partnership. Erika and Lori will kick off the session with a presentation of their partnership with the University of Houston librarians, and then the floor is open for you to share your experiences with others.



We have more in common than you think!

Steve Barnard

I am here today in place of Gwenan Hine who unfortunately cannot make it. Gwenan really wanted to be here, so please accept our apologies for the change of plan. My talk is probably a bit different to the other topics, however as I describe my role and day-to-day work as the Senior Compliance & Regulations Officer at Bangor University, you will see there are many cross-overs with the work of information professionals and knowledge managers. In the digital age and world of social media, the issues that arise keep us all on our toes…



Mapping the field: the National Bibliographic Knowledge survey

Amy Staniforth and Diana Massam

The National Bibliographic Knowledgebase (NBK) will help transform how libraries manage collections, provide access to resources and collaborate with each other and work towards the vision for a UK digital library. In 2018, at the request of its NBK Community Data Groups, Jisc coordinated the National Bibliographic Knowledgebase Community Survey which was responded to by 99 UK institutions.

This presentation will report the results of the survey and describe what these results suggest about metadata supply and practices around the UK. The presenters will also be seeking engagement from delegates on areas and methods for continuing research and development.



Engaging Libraries: inspiring and encouraging

Rachel Heydecker, Carnegie UK Trust

A session delivered by representatives from the Carnegie UK Trust where participants can hear about issues raised and techniques used during the first phase of Engaging Libraries, and begin to consider the second phase of the programme which will be launched this summer.

Engaging Libraries phase one supported 14 projects across 16 public library services in England, Scotland and Wales to work in collaboration to deliver public engagement activities which sparked conversation about health and wellbeing in communities. Projects covered a range of topics from death and brain development to the ageing process and childhood obesity.

The second phase of Engaging Libraries will support public libraries across the UK to deliver public engagement projects with research in health, culture and society, and to foster partnerships between public libraries and researchers.



Privacy literacy for better digital citizens

Aude Charillon

Many libraries and information centres offer digital skills training. But do we explain what happens with personal data online?

All citizens should be privacy literate, to make informed decisions about how much personal information they are comfortable sharing online and which software to use. We library and information professionals should be privacy literate, to help citizens and to ensure our own practices and systems are respectful of privacy.

This talk will cover how attendees can enhance their knowledge, what we can do in our institutions and how we may work together to make our services more respectful of citizens' privacy.



Discovering opportunities in unsure times

Lou Peck

Ever stared uncertainty in the face like redundancy or simply wondered what else could be out there? Lou will be drawing on her recent research identifying changes to roles in libraries all over the world, and personal experience of being made redundant twice. This fun interactive session will hopefully inspire you to not feel so alone and know there is more out there...so much more.



Keynote: Campaign to End Loneliness

Claire O'Shea

The Campaign to End Loneliness was formed in 2011 in response to the growing problem of loneliness in our communities. Since then they have gathered an enormous amount of evidence and research as to what the causes are and what some of the solutions might be. Libraries and public spaces play a vital role in communities, particularly as the high strtteet struggles. Arts and culture are also fundamental interest in a lot of people’s lives, keeping them resilient and linked in with communities of interest. Campaign to End Loneliness will take you through their work and what you might be able to do to end loneliness in your roles.



Libraries and Loneliness; How public libraries work to alleviate loneliness and social isolation in their communities

Jools Morgan-Jones

Drawing on the work of experts in the fields of social neuroscience and psychology, interwoven with references to contemporary best practice in user experience in libraries, this poster seeks to shine a light on the discreet, but constant, battle public libraries wage against loneliness and disconnection in their communities. The time has come to celebrate this quiet revolution, entrenched in the altruism which built these bastions of equality in society, and fought in increasingly difficult circumstances as they are embattled by financial cuts and enforced closures, cutting the people off from self-education and from each other.



Off The Shelf – Reading For Wellbeing at UWTSD

Samantha Scoulding

Research shows that reading for pleasure reduces stress and depression, lowers the risk of dementia and leads to a stronger sense of identity and social inclusion. Taking inspiration from the global ‘Book Fairy’ phenomenon, our ‘Off The Shelf’ outreach campaign has been designed to stimulate the emotional and physical wellbeing of our students and staff through access to fiction and non-fiction texts, for pleasure, via a series of themed campus book-drops. This paper will examine the research and outline the details of our campaign from inception to delivery, reflecting on the wider impact we hope to achieve within the HE wellbeing agenda.



Chartership for Knowledge Management for Candidates and Mentors

Sonia Ramdhian

This session takes a more in-depth look at what is required of candidates wishing to attain Chartership for Knowledge Management. It will cover the new PKSB for Knowledge Management and the specific requirements for candidates.

The session will also be useful to mentors considering supporting KM candidates, and CILIP members considering becoming mentors or professional registration assessors.
