ILI 2013: Plenary Talk on “Digital Life Beyond the Institution”

Title: Plenary Talk on “Digital Life Beyond the Institution”

Speaker: Brian Kelly

Date and time: 14.45 – 15.30 on Tuesday 15 October 2013

Session: Session A104 on “Being smart with technology – creating something from nothing” at the ILI 2013 conference.

Venue: Held at the Olympia Conference Centre, Hammersmith Road, London W18 8UX (see map).


Many librarians will have benefited from the provision of an institutional IT environment, which has provided the IT infrastructure, including hardware and software, disk space, backup services, etc.  But since we will all at some point leave our host institution for many there will be a need to be able to continue to have an online presence after we have left the comfort of our institutional environment.  In this talk Brian Kelly will describe his journey after redundancy to a self-managed environment and suggest that librarians may have a role to play in ensuring that their user communities have the skills to continue to function effectively when they leave their institution.
