Report from CILIP Conference 2018, Brighton

As per the experience of Laura Cagnazzo

Twitter: @LauraFCagnazzo

Winning a bursary from the Cataloguing & Indexing Group was such a thrill! I would have not been otherwise able to attend my first CILIP Conference. Seen from the perspective of a newly-qualified information professional (that I am), CILIP Brighton 2018 was a triumph of positivity, inspiration and passion for the profession. For those who were not able to attend, I would recommend to flick through the Conference pictures, visit the Conference website, check out the related tweets on Twitter (@CILIPConf18, #CILIPConf18) and listen to the special episode of the podcast “Librarians with Lives” by Jo Wood.

Catalogue & Index: Issue 189

The new issue of C&I (189) is now available here.

The theme of our December issue is cataloguing non-text based and unusual material and as a result is a bumper issue of very useful insights and practices.

Excerpt from the editorial:

Welcome to Catalogue and Index 189 where our theme this issue is
about cataloguing non-text based, and unusual material. We wanted to
hear from people who catalogue this kind of material as part of their daily
job, and who might be able to offer advice to those who only encounter it
occasionally. As a result we have a wonderful selection of articles
looking at a wide range of material from audio files to board games, pig
lungs to meteorites, and pop music to volcanoes! With a gamut of useful
information you may need to keep a copy of this issue close at hand to
help with those unexpected items arriving at your desk.

– Karen F. Pierce & Deborah Lee.

Enjoy 🙂
