wrote on the Special Interest Group: Commercial, Legal & Scientific Information Group wall: CLSIG are very pleased to offer a Briggs-Washington** bursary place for a CLSIG member to attend Internet Librarian International (ILI): the library innovation conference 2018 in London this October. You can read more about the conference at: What is covered: The bursary from CLSIG will cover a place at the conference, up to two nights hotel accommodation, and reasonable UK travel expenses. Requirements: Applicants must be members of CLSIG, and have agreement for attendance at the conference from their manager. The bursary recipient is expected to write an article for the CLSIG Journal to reflect on and develop ideas that came out of the conference (rather than simply describe the experience). We’d also like you to tweet during the conference (#ILI2018) and to spend some time with us on the CLSIG stand. How to apply: Submit a statement of no more than 300 words explaining why you wish to attend the conference, and how you believe it will benefit your professional practice. You may wish to mention any sessions in which you have a particular interest. In addition, please also include an estimate of travel costs (excluded from word count!) Send your application to by 5:00pm BST on Friday 7th September 2018. The recipient will be announced on Wednesday 12th September 2018. Unsuccessful bursary applicants are still able to get a CLSIG Member discount using the code CLSIG25 on booking. The early bird conference rate is available until 14th September 2018. **The Briggs-Washington Bursary is offered in memory of two outstanding members of the Commercial, Legal & Scientific Information Group: Norman Briggs and Bert Washington. CLSIG announced the launch of the Briggs-Washington bursary in 2015, which provides a free place to a CLSIG member to attend a conference. It is usually offered for the CILIP Conference and for Internet Librarian International.
