The LOC November meeting took place at the Royal College of Nursing at Ty Maeth in Cardiff on 30th November. We had the slightly daunting task of pulling together our successful submissions for workshops, presentations and posters into the first draft of the Programme for the 2018 Conference.
LOC and IPC committee members had done great work earlier in the month reviewing and considering the original 171 submitted abstracts received in the call for papers to assemble a great mix of titles reflecting the themes of Inspiring, Involving and Informing.
In our meeting Lori Havard, Programme Lead, coordinated our approach as we used flip chart paper and post it notes to create a draft Programme that we really believe has something for everyone and LOC members were getting very excited about the interesting mix of topics reflecting all aspects of health information and librarianship. The photos below show LOC members hard at work.
We were fueled by chocolates and biscuits, with thanks to members who contributed these and many thanks to Angela Perrett at the RCN for providing lunch.
Look out for more Speaker and Programme information appearing on the website in the early months of 2018.
LOC have one more meeting in 2017, then it won’t be long until we can say the conference is happening this year!
