We're pleased to announce that Dr Emma Coonan will be a Keynote speaker for i2c2 2017.
Emma is the Information Skills Librarian at UEA (University of East Anglia), Norwich. She holds an MSt and PhD in literary theory and an MSc in Information and Library Management, and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Emma's chief research interests are information literacy, learning development and the scholarship of teaching and learning.
In 2011 she was seconded to a fellowship at Wolfson College, Cambridge, to develop ‘A New Curriculum for Information Literacy’ in collaboration with Dr Jane Secker of City University. Since then she has jointly edited two books and is currently writing a third. In June 2015 she became Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Information Literacy.
She spends an unfeasible amount of time on trains and drinks far too much espresso.

Running through the conference, we're planning on having a physical version of a "Storify" happening.
The Print Project are bringing a portable printing press along that will be set up from Tuesday morning until the end of the conference on Wednesday. We'll be asking attendees to reflect throughout the conference, pick a tweet (or write a short sentence) about the conference and either let our printers create a physical manifestation of it, or use the type and press to create their own. They will then be able to take a copy away themselves, and we'll hopefully create a (very limited edition!) book from the sheets printed during the conference.
Festival of Dangerous (library) Ideas
This festival will be a key part of the conference, challenging us to think about what we do and how we do it in our professional practice... more information following shortly!
Programme information will follow as things are confirmed. Draft programme expected at the end of July.
Further highlights will be posted before the full programme!
