HLG runs its own Conference in alternate years.  This year's conference and dinner was held on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th September 2016 at The Scarborough Spa, Scarborough.  See the HLG Conference 2016 page for more details.


The CILIP Health Libraries Group (HLG) awarded 8 HLG member bursary places and 3 student places to attend this year’s HLG conference to be held in Scarborough on 15 & 16 September. The bursaries have included:

· A complimentary place on both days of the conference

· The conference dinner

· £200 towards travel and accommodation, as required.

The HLG Committee is always keen to support people who might not normally have the opportunity to attend the conference. Priority is given to first time attendees, in particular newly qualified professionals and staff working in a non-professional role. 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.
