Online registrations for the DREaM conference close today

Online registrations for the Developing Research Excellence and Methods (DREaM) project conference, which takes place at the British Library conference centre on Monday 9th July, close today (Monday 2nd July). We still have some places available for librarians, information professionals, researchers, academics, practitioner researchers and students – indeed all interested in library and information science research and its use in practice in general, and in particular anyone keen to follow and join the debate on:

  • The value and impact of libraries and information services
  • The evidence to demonstrate the value and impact of libraries and information services
  • The development of a UK network of researchers and library and information practitioner-researchers

For just £95 the exciting DREaM conference programme includes:

  • Keynote presentations by international expert on value measurement in libraries Professor Carol Tenopir, and best-selling author, broadcaster, medical doctor and academic Dr Ben Goldacre
  • Papers on the DREaM project by Hazel Hall, and the DREaM network by Louise Cooke
  • An open panel discussion on how a UK network of LIS researchers can be sustained, led by Charles Oppenheim with contributions from the conference speakers and panelists Jo Alcock and Carla Basili
  • A series of delegate-led “one minute madness” presentations covering a range of work across all library sectors, chaired by Mike Clarke of Camden Libraries
  • Presentation of the Practitioner Researcher Excellence Award by Dr Ben Goldacre to the North West Clinical Librarian Systematic Review and Evaluation Group
  • Access to the conference exhibition including stands from Ashgate, Facet, Sage and Wiley
  • Post-conference networking drinks reception and prize draw
