Practitioner and LIS student perspectives on information literacy for librarians
Next week I’m very happy to be speaking at the ACRL 2017 conference in Baltimore about my work on information literacy in the LIS curriculum. Here’s the abstract for the paper, which will be in the conference proceedings:
This paper considers recent findings of ongoing research exploring how Library and Information Studies education can most effectively support students in developing their information literacy instruction practices. Practicing librarians in the UK were interviewed in order to gather their insights on the development of their information literacy instruction skills. The analysis identified key concepts and issues which may help to inform curriculum development in information literacy in LIS education, which is a growth area in the UK.
I’m very much looking forward to meeting participants from around the world and exchanging stories and views. Do contact me if you’d like to hook up.
