Bonnie Hilditch 2016 Award

Just wanted to flag up that the Engineering and SciTech divisions of SLA are now accepting nominations for next year’s Bonnie Hilditch Award. This was the award that enabled me to attend the SLA conference in Boston in June this year. I would strongly encourage anyone who works in a library role relating to the […]

SLA 2015: key learning points

The week before last I headed off to Boston, MA, USA for the Special Libraries Association conference. I’m lucky enough to have been able to attend in previous years, so this was my third conference (thanks to the Bonnie Hilditch International Librarian Award, from the Engineering and SciTech divisions).

Part of the reason I’ve put off voting for so long is that […]
