The conference is still available to book, and potential attendees can take advantage group rates for multiple delegates from the same organisation. This year's ILI conference includes keynote talks on communicating value and transformation for success on day one, and the role libraries can play in countering the ‘think-less find-more’ mentality on day two. There are also many parallel streams including talks focusing on new professionals, user interfaces, content design, marketing and scholarly communication. More information can be found at
