LILAC 2017, day 2

Day 2 of LILAC 2017 started with a personal and insightful keynote by Barbara Allan, who shared the story of her career and gave some top tips on how to influence, convince and ultimately make the changes we want to see happen in our own institutions.

As well as the inspiring parallel sessions taking place throughout the day, the Lagadathon, now in its second year, showcased 3 new IL ideas in search of some funding. The winner was Tracy Dix from the University of Warwick for her frogger-inspired Harvard referencing game.

The conference dinner took place at the splendid Brangwyn Hall. The post-dinner awards ceremony revealed the winner of the Credo Digital Award to be Charlie Farley for  23 Things for Digital Knowledge at the University of Edinburgh. The  Information Literacy Award winner was Helen Howard from the University of Leeds. Helen had presented earlier in the day about the work she and her colleagues have done to support second year students.
