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.

Physical Tweets

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, dominating the middle day (Tuesday) of the conference, and challenging us to think about what we do and how we do it in our professional practice.

It will work in 4 phases - idea generation, problem identification, then possible solutions. Followed by a reporting back to the whole conference.

All hands on, with lots of creative materials to prompt discussions and solutions.

Talks and workshops

Most of these will be on Monday and Wednesday, leaving the middle day focussed largely on the festival of dangerous library ideas. Abstracts are now available (see below).

Monday, registration from 10:00 onwards.
