CILIP conference

The CILIP conference has long provided the information community with vital support, insight and upskilling opportunities. With its focus on the theme of leadership, this year’s conference will bring together established, emerging and aspiring leaders to explore the challenges and opportunities the sector currently faces.

CLA’s bursary places are open to those at licensed organisations, and to someone who is a student, new to the profession or without the financial means to cover the ticket. CLA recognises the vital role that conferences can offer aspiring or emerging leaders, and it is our mission to make these opportunities available to all those who are passionate about information literacy, regardless of background. We are particularly interested in hearing from people who have never been to the CILIP Conference before, and who wouldn’t ordinarily be able to go.

Keep an eye out for CILIP Bursary 2024 opportunities.

Busrary winner testimonials

I had the privilege of attending this year’s CILIP Conference. I think it’s important to start here – it was a privilege, and I would not have been able to attend this event without a bursary such as the one I got. So, to everyone at CLA, thank you.

Arriving at the Hilton Metropole, I received a warm welcome with coffees and oaty biscuits. It was also nice to have arrived with one my colleagues from the British Library and in the exhibition area; we soon met people from other libraries and organisations. A lovely start!
Thank you to the Copyright Licensing Agency for supporting my visit to the CILIP Conference. It was very enlightening and enjoyable.
