Bookings fill up fast for RIVAL events 2, 3 and 4

RIVAL logoFollowing the success of the ‘taster’ Research, Impact, Value and Library and Information Science (RIVAL) project event on July 11th 2019, most of the places for the set of three network events on 7th November 2019, 19th March 2020, and 9th July 2020 have been booked.

If you are keen to become a member of this collaborative network of Scotland-based Library and Information Science (LIS) researchers and practising library and information professionals with interests in maximising the impact and value of LIS research, please register on EventBrite as soon as possible to secure your place at the three future events. (NB sign-up is for all three events as a set. This is to facilitate network building over the course of the project. It is not possible to register for any of the three events individually.)

Thanks to funding from the Royal Society of Edinburgh participation at the network events is free of charge, and we are also able to provide travel/accommodation bursaries to support the attendance of those from outside Edinburgh. We are particularly keen to encourage colleagues from beyond the Central Belt to join us to extend the network’s impact and value across Scotland.

To find out more about RIVAL and the RIVAL event contributors, please see the RIVAL web site at or contact the RIVAL administrator: Dr Bruce Ryan by email at
