The final preparations for tomorrow’s LIS DREaM project launch conference are underway and we are looking forward to a packed programme of presentations,workshop discussions and a little bit of madness.
If you are unable to make the conference, but want to follow online, there will be lots of ways you can keep track of what’s going on and get involved in the debates surrounding the event…
Bright and early tomorrow morning we will be publishing a series of pages providing links to all of the materials you will need to follow each session. This will include speakers’ slides and handouts, where applicable.
We will be providing a live commentary of the event and online support through the @LIS_DREaM Twitter account. If you do not use Twitter, you can still follow this commentary and offer your insights to the online discussion using CoverItLive. You will not need an account to access or take part in the CoverItLive session.
If you want to get to know other participants before the event, simply follow our Twitter list of DREaM participants. To follow tweets from the wider event audience, please follow the #lis_dream1 hashtag.
We are keeping an archive of the Twitter discussions on this hashtag, which you will be able to find at Twapperkeeper.
Our event amplifier, Kirsty Piktin, will be managing both the @LIS_DREaM Twitter account and the CoverItLive session, so will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about any of the online materials. If you have a burning question you would like to put to any of our speakers, let Kirsty know through one of these channels and she will act as your advocate in the room to get an answer for you.
After the event
We will be recording the main keynote presentations and making these available shortly after the event, subject to speaker consent. We will also be providing written summaries of the sessions, and posting short video interviews with a range of speakers and delegates to give you a sense of the different reactions and perspectives at the event.
We look forward to welcoming you to the LIS DREaM conference tomorrow – either in person or virtually!
