9 - 11 March 2016 :: British Library

The RLUK Conference is an annual event that brings together the key thought leaders and innovators from across the library and information sectors, to explore the essential issues concerning the evolving role of the library in research and scholarship. The conference is open to both RLUK and non-RLUK organisations.

The theme for the 2016 conference is disruptive innovation - we want to explore how this type of innovation can help us move beyond traditional models and legacy thinking in order to drive forward change and progress. This is required in order to develop new opportunities for libraries through the reinvention and rethinking of strategies, policies, organisational structures, cultures, systems and work processes.

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations (20 minutes) or workshops (1.5hr).
