Two days in Dundee: the UK Knowledge Mobilisation Forum 2024

I’ve been attending this annual event since I started my PhD researching health and care knowledge and library specialists’ role in knowledge mobilisation within and beyond their organisations. Unlike most of the conferences and training sessions that we attend as library professionals, the UK Knowledge Mobilisation Forum isn’t primarily targeted at librarians or indeed any particular professional group; it is aimed at anyone “with a passion for ensuring that knowledge makes a positive difference to society”. Our very own Susan Smith from the JET Library at Mid Cheshire Hospitals is on the organising committee though, so the profession is represented at the highest level! Typical attendees include students, practitioners, researchers, academics, policy makers and civil servants. It is always a very interactive event, providing a space for sharing knowledge, experiences and methods through such things as a knowledge fayre, storytelling, an ideas jam and interactive poster plenaries.
