A quick reminder that it is now just 3 weeks until the deadline to submit abstracts for the 2012 CILIP Health Libraries Group Conference.
As you will know the conference is being held at the Glasgow Science Centre on Thursday 12th and Friday 13th July and the theme will be: Health libraries under the microscope: perfecting your formula
The conference will seek to examine the current state of health librarianship in all sectors and to enable delegates to find the right formula for their setting in the future but in order to do this, we need your help. A conference is only as good as the abstracts submitted to it and so we would encourage you to consider what you could share with the your colleagues to help health librarianship go from strength to strength.
While we would encourage you to submit abstracts on any topic, we are giving 4 suggested strands as a starting point. These strands continue the scientific nature of the main theme but we want to make clear we are not expecting or insisting on a scientific feel to papers. The strands are:
- Anatomy of evidence-based practice
- Biology of library and information services
- Chemistry of collaboration and networking
- Physics of information technology use
For this conference, we are changing the way that abstracts are to be submitted. Please submit them using the online form that can be found by going to the conference website http://www.uhl-library.nhs.uk/hlg2012 and clicking on 'Programme'.
The deadline for submissions is 30th November. All submissions will be acknowledged and we will try inform everyone of the outcome of their applications by the 31st December.
Use of the web form is the only way that abstracts can be considered for inclusion on the programme for HLG 2012, but other queries about the conference can be sent to the conference team by email: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> or [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
We have also set up a conference blog (http://hlg2012.blogspot.com<http://hlg2012.blogspot.com/>) which also contains details of the other ways that you can keep up-to-date on the latest conference news, and we are intending to make plenty of announcements in the weeks ahead so please use your preferred method to keep yourself informed.
