Student Librarians and Information Professionals Ireland is a non-profit organisation founded in 2015 by Helena Byrne and Clare Murnane. Our mission is to provide a platform for students of library & information studies in Ireland to explore their own research interests and to engage with academics and professionals in the field.
Our goal is to bridge the gap between theory and practice in LIS, to encourage and facilitate dialogue on both theoretical and practical issues in the discipline. We do this through this blog and our annual conference.
If you would like to get involved with SLIP please email email@example.com, we would love to hear from you.
What to expect from the blog?
Regular discussions about current trends, issues and research interests in the field of library and information science. There will be regular postings accompanied by Twitter and Facebook posts.
Student reflective blog posts on topics in LIS that interest them.
Regular guests posts from Library and Information Professionals working in the field.
Features highlights of cultural heritage institutions around Ireland.
