About

LISDIS (Library and Information Science Dissertations) is a conference where recent graduates of LIS courses can share the research they completed as part of their dissertations.

Last year’s conference consisted of short presentations, a poster session and a guest speaker. It was held at The Heritage Quay, University of Huddersfield on Saturday 14 November 2015, which you can read about venue information page.  To find out more about what happened see our what people say about LISDIS page.

We’re excited that LISDIS will be returning for a second year on Saturday 5 November 2016 – our call for papers is currently open and you can book your free ticket here. Keep an eye out for announcements about guest speakers, the presenter lineup and more!

LISDIS was developed by Michelle Bond, Rosie Higman, Jessica Haigh and Emily Wheeler out of a frustration that so much good research is completed by students at iSchools but is never shared with the public. If you have any queries please email lisdisconference@gmail.com and we hope you can join us in November!
