Looking forward to the Third International Seminar on LIS Education and Research (LIS-ER), Barcelona, June 4-5 2015

Third Seminar on LIS Education and Research logo The Third International Seminar on Education and Research (LIS-ER) is organised this year by the Faculty of Library and Information Science at the University of Barcelona as part of its centenary celebrations. The meeting is supported by the European Association for Library and Information Education and Research (EUCLID) and the Red Universitaria de centros de Información y Documentación (RUID). It takes place 4-5 June 2015 on the University of Barcelona campus.

The focus of the meeting is education and research in library and information science. The programme comprises conference presentations, panels, and a poster session.

I am pleased to have been invited as one of the speakers, joining a number of others including Dr Blaise Cronin, Visiting Professor to the Centre for Social Informatics at Edinburgh Napier University.

I have been asked to speak on the theme of challenges in LIS research. The organisers have made a particular request that I draw on my experience of leading the implementation of the UK Library and Information Science Research Coalition between 2009 and 2012. My presentation is Meeting the challenges of LIS research: a national coalition approach.

If you would like to contribute to the poster session, submissions are due by Friday 30th January. Early bird registration for the event is open until 3rd April 2015 (120€).
