Opportunities on the LISDIS committee

Conference Committee Members

The LISDIS conference organisers are looking for committed New Professionals from any sector of LIS to join the committee.

Founded in 2015, LISDIS is currently a one-day conference that highlights LIS Masters research, with sessions on continuing this research in the workplace, and publishing LIS research.

We are looking for recent (last five years) LIS graduates from any sector of the discipline who are willing to commit at least 1 hour a week to conference organisation between November and March, although this will vary over the planning and preparing process, with volunteers also committing to being available the full day of the conference. It is expected that the volunteers will commit to two conferences, in 2018 and 2019.

Benefits to volunteering for the conference committee include networking with professionals from various sectors, including conference sponsors; experience of planning an event and putting together a conference programme; running the social media and web platforms of the conference and marketing the event.

We would strongly welcome applicants from areas of LIS outside of HE libraries.

Emails expressing interest in joining the committee should be sent to lisdisconference@gmail.com before the 30 October 2017.
