Micropublishing, teaching, digital research: different worlds, or all in a day's work for the (future) librarian? Talk by Frank Egerton, CILIP South Member Network & CILIP Thames Valley AGM

This talk will attempt to join up the worlds of creative writing, teaching, research, digital innovation and librarianship. Drawing on Frank’s experience in these areas, he will explore the opportunities offered by print-on-demand and e-book technologies, as well as looking at the ways in which online courses and digital methods are transforming teaching and research. A key question for him will be, what aspects of his lives outside the Bodleian are in fact skills that might readily transfer to a library context?
