Dear all,

The Forum for Interlending and Information Delivery (FIL) are delighted to 
confirm that the only UK annual conference specifically for and about the world 
of inter-library loans, Interlend 2018, will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel 
in Birmingham on the 25 - 26 June 2018.


As the premier UK inter-lending community conference, Interlend annually 
attracts around 60-80 interlending staff from all levels of seniority with  a 
large proportion of our delegates being inter-lending practitioners i.e. 
library assistants rather than professional grades.  They come from all sectors 
of the Library community, primarily UK based and with perhaps more from HE/FE 
and Public Libraries than any other sectors.  Interlend is also renowned for 
offering our delegates practical tips and guidance, as well as broadening their 
understanding of the world of interlending and as such, we try to encourage all 
our speakers and breakout session facilitators to keep this in mind.

The FIL committee now invites applications from the inter-lending community to 
speak and/or run breakout sessions or workshop sessions.

Interlend 2018: Shaping the future together.

The theme for Interlend 2018 centres on the changes affecting  interlending 
practices and behaviour and how we can meet expectations and challenges in the 
future bearing in mind technical advances, 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

Next steps:

Proposals should include:

  *   An abstract detailing your proposal (max. 800 words.) We will also 
require a short description of your session (max. 50 words) which will be 
displayed when delegates are choosing their parallel sessions
  *   A 50 word speaker biography
  *   Full Contact Details

Proposals should be emailed to the Chair of FIL Nigel Buckley 
n.buckley@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:n.buckley@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>  by 9th March 2018 
after which point they will be reviewed by the Committee.  The Chair will be in 
touch with all applicants after this date to confirm or decline your proposal.  
Submission of a proposal does not guarantee acceptance, and the Committee's 
considered selection of proposals is final.  We regret that due to time 
restrictions no correspondence over the decision will be entered into.

If you'd like to informally discuss possible themes, topics or approaches for 
your sessions please don't hesitate to get in touch with Nigel Buckley 

For more information about FIL, including how to join, please visit the FIL 
website at www.forumforinterlending.org.uk

We look forward to discussing your ideas further.

With thanks.


Matthias Werner (on behalf of the FIL committee)
