Newsletter archive: October 2012

Welcome to our October newsletter which contains lots of information about our events during the rest of 2012. The CILIP in London committee looks forward to welcoming you to our Winter events in the coming months.

************************************************************************************************

CILIP in London Evening Meetings at The Square Tavern.

Reminder to book for our October meeting next week.

The TUC Collections at London Metropolitan University

Speaker: Chris Coates, Librarian of the TUC (Trades Union Congress) Collections at London Metropolitan University
Date: Monday, 8th October 2012
Time: 6.30pm
Venue: The Square (Wine Bar), Tolmers Square, Somers Town, London NW1
Map: http://g.co/maps/w973q

Chris Coates, Librarian of the TUC Collections at London Metropolitan University, will talk about the history of the Collections, the variety of their content, and their contribution to research into both historical and current aspects of workplace life and politics.

Chris will also discuss the Collections’ digitisation programme and issues relating to opening up an institutional library to make them accessible to a wider user group. Like the other special collection in Londonmet – the Women’s Library – the TUC Collections’ future was under threat due to a shortfall in funding, but successful talks over a proposed a joint-funding initiative with the Trades Union Congress was agreed in June

This talk will be of particular value to anyone registered for CILIP Chartership and can contribute towards CPD requirements. Refreshments will be available afterwards.

In November we are pleased to welcome Jon Brassey who will talk on ‘The highs and lows of running the TRIP Database’

Date: Tuesday 20 November 2012
Time: 6.30pm
Venue: The Square, 26 Tolmers Square, London, NW1 2PE
Map: http://g.co/maps/w973q

TRIP started by accident, got picked up early on by Bandolier (a very popular and independent publication, specific to evidence-based medicine) and has grown significantly since then. It has a global audience and has been searched over 60 million times.

It has been an interesting journey with a large number of highs and a large number of lows. Jon will cover areas such as how TRIP got started and how it's grown. He'll also cover funding concerns (typically having not enough money but on one occasion too much), the relationships (good and bad), where the ideas come from and his amazing ability to fail in acquisition negotiations.

Biography: Jon Brassey has worked in the world of clinical effectiveness and evidence based medicine for nearly 15 years. His main area of work is clinical question answering. As part of this work Jon created and still runs the TRIP Database, an 'evidence based' clinical search engine. He also works for Public Health Wales.
