The introduction was handled by Debbie Boden, who pointed out that it is the 5th anniversary of LILAC this year, and that there are over 250 delegates this year.

The welcome to Cardiff University was handled by Dr David Grant, who talked stats for the University - (26,000 FTE students, 6,000 of which on PG courses, 3,000 international students, and 6,000 staff members) He managed to get two references to Doctor Who in his welcome. There are 18 libraries in and around Cardiff and some have recently benefited from an injection of cash, with some regeneration for some of the libraries. Cardiff uni recently introduced RFID for issues and returns, which is proving very popular with the students. More sessions later, but coffee break now.
