LILAC

Today is my last day at work for the next three weeks.  I’m very excited about my upcoming trip to the UK, especially the opportunity to participate and present at the Librarian’s Information Literacy Annual Conference (LILAC) in Glasgow from 11-13th April.

LILAC is aimed at librarians and information professionals who teach information literacy skills, are interested in digital literacies and want to improve the information seeking and evaluation skills of  library users.

Also of interest is the CILIP-produced Journal of Information Literacy, which has many articles worth reading in this field.

I will be presenting on the work accomplished so far on my Tertiary Prep Unit as part of the theme of transition between secondary and higher education and I’m anticipating meeting all the amazing people attending conference from over 30 countries and learning so much from them.

If you have an interest in Information Literacy and you want to follow the conference “talk” then you can follow along on Twitter using the hashtag #LILAC12.

I’ll be blogging and tweeting as much as I can while I’m away but will also be reflecting on my return.
