The talks themselves were split between 5 minute and 2 minute slots, which ensured that there was a lot of variety and liveliness in the presentations. These all focused on 'techy tools or teaching tips' but afforded time to explaining everything for those who were not familiar with terms or tools, which was great for me at least!
There were ten separate talks and I'll not go into all of them here but I'll pick out a few that I found particularly interesting. Liz Osman from Homerton discussed library posters and the importance of eye-catching graphics while, at times, also keeping it simple if that is what is required. What made a lot of sense to me was the importance of pitching posters to the consumer, which will be different in every library.
