The day before the conference, October 29 (Thursday), a group of library professionals UNDER 40 years old will be holding an event as detailed below. This will be an excellent chance for you to network with other library staff and chat to open a future full of hope, rather than dwell on the problems we currently face.
Session 1: Lightning Talk
Around 10 participants will give short presentations about their current work. We are currently accepting candidates to make presentations.
Session 2: Free Talking Time
Expand your network and contacts! Seating arrangements will regularly change so you can talk to as many people as possible.
Those over 40 years of age are encouraged to participate as volunteers to keep a watchful eye over us younger ones!
Date and time: October 29 (Thursday), 7PM to 9PM.
Place: HUB British Pub, Hibiya
B1 Matsui Building, 1-6-8 Yurakucho, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, 100-0006
Cost: 1,500 yen (Standing. Food included) Please purchase your own drinks at the bar.
