The FIL committee now invites applications from the inter-lending community to speak and/or run breakout sessions or workshop sessions.
Interlend 2019 will be hosted at the Hilton Belfast on 24th and 25th of June 2019. The theme for Interlend 2019 centres on the changes affecting interlending practices and behaviour by new and evolving technologies and how we can meet expectations and challenges in the future, the move to more e-books; inclusive practices; collaborative innovations and reduced copyright restrictions.
Presentation/workshop topics could cover:
• Interlending & Document Supply Service Reviews
• Service Development/Practical solutions to everyday problems
• The impact and implications of copyright law
• Interlending tools and systems
• Open access
• Money Saving Initiatives
• Meeting the needs of disabled users
• International interlending
Breakout sessions are typically 45 minutes long and can be tailored to
meet the speaker’s needs – either chalk-and-talk or workshop based.
Speakers accepted at FIL events will be able to attend the conference
free of charge, along with one night’s accommodation where required and
all reasonable travelling expenses
