CILIP Yorkshire & Humberside members day 2010

On the train on the way home from the members day now, so thought I’d jot some thoughts down while it’s all still fresh in my mind. I’m posting this via email from my phone, which I’ve never tried doing before, so apologies if the formatting/spelling is a bit off! I’m really glad I got […]

NPC 2010: my impressions

My fellow presenters and delegates from Monday’s New Professionals Conference have already been blogging up a storm, so I’ve decided not to do a full write-up of everyone else’s talks.

CILIP Umbrella: Second Life
