Final preparations are now well underway for the DREaM concluding conference on Monday 9th July. If you are not able to join us at the British Library in person, you can still participate by following the event online…
We will be providing a live commentary of the conference on Twitter using the @LIS_DREaM account. If you wish to contribute your own views, or discuss the issues further with others, please use the event hash tag #lis_dream5 to take part in the wider conversation.
If you want to find out who else is attending or following the conference, make sure you visit the event Lanyrd page and connect with others in advance.
Alternatively, if you are not a Twitter user, please click here to visit our conference discussion space, where you can follow the live coverage throughout the day and discuss the issues with others who are following the event live online.
We will be welcoming questions from outside the conference room during the Q&A sessions and panel discussion, so you have a question you would like to ask one of the speakers, please tweet it to @LIS_DREaM or add it to the conference discussion space.
Visit the conference programme page on Monday morning to access individual session pages for each presentation. These will provide you with the materials you need to follow along with the live commentary, including the speakers’ slides, where appropriate.
As with previous DREaM events, we hope to bring you video footage and a summary of each of the presentations shortly after the event, subject to speaker permissions.
Our event amplifier, Kirsty Pitkin, will be on hand throughout the event to support you. She will be tweeting as @LIS_DREaM and monitoring the conference discussion space, should you have any questions. If you would like to ask one of the speakers a question about their presentation, tweet it to @LIS_DREaM or add it to the conference discussion space and Kirsty will relay it to the speaker on your behalf, and feedback to you with the answer to your question.
We look forward to welcoming you to the conference on Monday, whether you’ll be joining us in person or online.
