Winners Sarah Wolfenden and Valérie Spezi

Congratulations to Sarah Wolfenden of Brunel University and Valérie Spezi of LISU at Loughborough University, both of whom have been awarded LIRG-sponsored places at next week’s DREaM conference.

The judging committee selected Sarah and Valérie as winners on the basis of their application statements. Each statement reflected the ethos of both the DREaM project and LIRG, i.e. to inspire LIS practitioners to become involved in, and be enthusiastic about, research.

Sarah said in her statement:

“The keynotes would give me practical ideas for assessing my own and the library department’s impact within my institution. The dynamism of ‘one minute madness’ would give me the boost of optimism I have found from past Teachmeets and, if I enjoy it, I may even move into research myself.”

Valérie’s statement reads:

“As a junior researcher, I believe that the DREaM conference would be a great opportunity for me to reflect on my own research practice and learn more about the transfer of research knowledge into the workplace. It would also help me build a professional network with other LIS researchers.”
