Global Perspectives on Information Literacy

ANCIL authors, Dr Emma Coonan and Dr Jane Secker, have been working with colleagues in the US on a white paper entitled “Global Perspectives on Information Literacy”. As its title suggests, the paper explores information literacy worldwide.

The paper is due to be presented and discussed at the ACRL Conference, which takes place in Baltimore from 23 – 25 March. Jane Secker will be attending to present a UK perspective on IL as part of the paper.

On 28 February at 4pm (GMT), a webinar about the white paper is being hosted by Emma Coonan and Merinda Kaye Hensley. This will provide an opportunity to hear about how it came about and an introduction to its key themes and highlights.

ACRL Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy Webcast Series

The CILIP Information Literacy Group are delighted to launch a series of 3 webinars and we are partnering with an expert team from the United States, from the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) in this series of webinars exploring the Intersections between Scholarly Communications and Information Literacy. These webinars will be free to ILG members and are offered at a reduced rate for those who wish to sign up to the series.
The mission of higher education institutions is to create and communicate knowledge, and libraries and information services are fundamental to this mission. However when considering strategic approaches, many academic libraries have separated their activities into discrete areas of ‘teaching and learning support’ and ‘research support’. However this risks failing to acknowledge and make best use of the considerable overlap between the two areas, particularly in the use of digital technologies, consideration of economic and regulatory constraints, and the overarching cultural and ethical ramifications of intellectual endeavour. This set of webinars therefore examines the intersection of the worlds of teaching and research from the perspective of 21st century information work, namely the fields of Scholarly Communications and Information Literacy.

Each webcast is one hour long and includes time for conversation and questions. While they act as a series, each webcast can be viewed independently. So you could register for any combination that meets your needs.

‘Getting published’ can feel like a baffling process – even for those going through it! This presentation aims to demystify the experience of submitting an article to a journal. It explains what happens inside the ‘black box’ of the publication process, how peer reviewers evaluate articles, and what journal editors are looking for. The presentation contains lots of tips, including

  • ways of dealing with peer reviewers’ comments
  • key questions to help frame your research
  • how to go about structuring your article
  • ways to get started with writing – and to keep going!

Finally, you’ll be invited to consider what you could publish.
