Information Skills for a 21st Century Scotland
Leading activists from the former Scottish Information Literacy Project are pleased to announce the launch of a new online information literacy community of practice: Information Skills for a 21st century Scotland. The website www.therightinformation.org/ hosted by Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC) also includes the <http://caledonianblogs.net/nilfs/> Scottish Information Literacy Framework, information about the Scottish Information Literacy Project (formerly based at Glasgow Caledonian University from 2004 to 2010) and a valuable archive of material, including the Project blog, built up over several years.
The launch will take place on Monday 11th June 2012 at 10.30 - 10.45 at the Chartered Institute for Library and Information Professionals in Scotland (CILIPS) Conference 2012, in the Apex Hotel, Dundee.
The launch will be followed by a parallel session from 14.00 to 15.00 - Finding the right information: improving professional practice using the Scottish Information Literacy Framework: an informal discussion to help build a Scottish Information Literacy Community of Practice
The community is open to everyone who is interested in information literacy (IL) and associated skills and competencies: join the community, share practice, contribute to the community's knowledge of IL activities, case studies, news, conferences and events, new research etc. We are also looking for individuals and groups across the LIS sectors/community to work with us to update the framework with new case studies.
Come and join us and contribute to what will be a vibrant community working towards the common goal of creating an information literate Scotland.
