#LILAC17

Leanne's experience of her first Librarians' Information Literacy Annual Conference (held in Swansea) as captured by social media! (This is also incidentally her first Storify too... bear with...)

  1. So in the weeks leading up to LILAC 2017, Emma, Rachel & I were busy preparing our e-poster and choosing which talks we'd all like to go on...
  2. For those interested parties, our e-poster can be checked out here: bit.ly/2nCHssA
  3. So first there was the journey to get to Swansea University, Bay Campus... which as you can see was a challenge with all my luggage!
  4. I spy with my little eye something beginning with L... yup, travelling L-ight for #lilac17 😜 https://t.co/yRjBPkPNqo

  5. Upon checking in we were given a tote bag full of goodies (including a swish new notebook) and a lanyard with all the info we need on it! It felt a bit like going to a music festival!
  6. Good morning Swansea, good morning #lilac17 very nice freebie notepad to trial #sketchnoting in

  7. So because we're all adult librarians with a love of gamification, there was a number of "activities" for us to do whilst networking. I found these porcine pals who looked happy to welcome us!
  8. #piggyback found a couple of friends here at #lilac17 (I am totally taking my time here seriously...) 🤓

  9. My first session was about how to create inventive copyright training sessions (our's involved role play, flipped learning and a healthy amount of food bribery. Interpretative dance may have been suggested by some!) I had to feed our ideas back to the group and got a copyright cake for my efforts!
  10. Then for the student winners, there was the obligatory publication of my mugshot to get conference-goers to talk to me! (It worked!!)
  11. I then attended a really useful session on how PGR students really find information! This will hopefully inform a lot of what Debbie P & I do with the PGR space and service...
  12. There was a spot of time on the morning of the second day to check out the beach. yup, Swansea Bay campus has its very own beach...
  13. On the beach absorbing the rays before 2nd day of #lilac17 @ Swansea University Bay Campus https://t.co/5KbPUCG4nb

  14. though it does come with some drawbacks...
  15. I also did some stalking of Swansea's engineering department. They had a flight simulator, a robot and some pretty impressive stats on what their department has done... I hope that our own new Electronic Engineering department will like this!
  16. Checking out the engineering department at Swansea! They have a wind tunnel, a flight simulator… https://t.co/1tnk0cHhBO

  17. I attended a session where a librarian had conducted some research with academics to learn how they teach students about information. It was incredibly informative and she was a fabulous speaker (I was in awe, especially when she saw me nodding away and asked me for answers... this is where enthusiasm gets you!!)
