I’m incredibly excited to announce that I have teamed up with Information Today and ILI: The Library Innovation Conference to bring you a special set of podcasts to introduce the event, celebrate 20 years of ILI, and speak to some of the key players involved.
I delivered a talk on Day 2 on Live, Love Librarian: the power of the podcast and I recorded an episode of LwL at the conference, similar to the episode I produced at #CILIPConf18 in July.
#LwLPod at #ILI2018 Episode 1 features Kat Allen, Brian Kelly, Alison McNab and Helen Lippell. Kat, Brian and Alison have been involved with ILI for many years and they are ideally placed to introduce the conference, reflect on the changes and innovations that they’ve seen over the years, highlight their must-sees, and offer advice to delegates. Helen is in charge of the Taxonomy Bootcamp, which runs alongside ILI.
This episode is a great introduction to the event for new and returning delegates and speakers. It also amplifies ILI to those who can’t attend the conference but want to follow along on social media.
Brian has written a blogpost reflecting on 20 years of ILI and Alison has written some helpful guidance for delegates to help them get the most out of attending conferences.
#LwLPod at #ILI2018 Episode 2 features Martin Hamilton, Futurist at JISC and Day 2 keynote speaker at the conference. Martin provides a (reasonably) spoiler-free introduction to his presentation and from there we have a wide-ranging chat about technology, the future of data storage, big ideas, space travel, billionaires doing mad things, etc.
#LwLPod at #ILI2018 Episode 3 features Hal Kirkwood and Natasha Chowdory, both of whom spoke on day 1 of the conference.
#LwLPod at #ILI2018 Episode 4 is the all-singing, all-dancing conference and Taxonomy Bootcamp special, featuring 50 delegates, speakers, vendors and organisers.
