Development of the Information Literacy website

The Information Literacy website was developed in 2005 by the Information Literacy Group, which was a special interest group of the CILIP Community Service Group.  The site received support from a range of groups, including:

Special thanks go to Eduserv, who made the Information Literacy website possible by providing web design and hosting services from 2005 to 2010. The Information Literacy website was launched by Jonathan Douglas, (formerly Head of Learning and Access at the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA), now Director of the National Literacy Trust) at the Librarians’ Information Literacy Annual Conference (LILAC) in 2005.

The site is now solely maintained by the CILIP Information Literacy Group through the kind support of librarians who volunteer their time and passion.
