We are delighted to announce that Abi Alayo and Frances Tout will be joining us early in 2016 to jointly host our next CILIP International Library & Information Group (ILIG) Informal! Both recently returned from working visits to libraries in the USA and are keen to share what they have learnt from their contrasting experiences. This will also be an opportunity to pick up tips on what is involved in undertaking a study tour; from the process of securing funding to the practicalities of undertaking international visits.

This event will be particularly useful to anyone thinking of applying for this year's Travelling Librarian Award. Details of the Award can be accessed here:

 ILIG Informals are not lectures; they are informal, but informative, early evening meetings with a short talk on a theme of international interest plus plenty of time for questions and networking. They are open to all and absolutely free. Light refreshments are served which is why we ask you to let ILIG know you are coming by booking online (no later than January 11th 2016) at:
