CILIP Conference 2019

We are delighted to announce that the winner of the bursary place for CILIP Conference 2019 is: Sheldon Korpet

We were thoroughly impressed by Sheldon's application "Innovative Marketing Plan for Sheffield Children's Central Library" which outlined a marketing campaign to boost childhood literacy and promote library services in collaboration with commercial booksellers.

Congratulations Sheldon.

Sheldon currently works as an Information Officer and Capacity Management Assistant (both at The University of Sheffield). She recently joined Sheffield Central Library as a Code Club Volunteer and tweets @SheldonKorpet. She is a qualified Librarian and completed her MSc in Digital Library Management from the University of Sheffield in 2017.

Thank you to all the other applications who entered for a bursary place. There is still time to take advantage of the Early Bird Discount (ending 17 May) so that you can also experience the range of expert-led seminars and workshops. Remember to log in to the CILIP website before booking so that it recognises your membership status and offers you the correct delegate rate.

The 2019 conference promises to be another informative affair and will encourage discussion, knowledge sharing and cross-sectoral learning, and provide delegates with the practical skills and knowledge to positively influence the future.

PPRG will have a stand in the exhibition hall, so remember to come and say hello, find out about our event schedule and see you can get involved with our projects.
