Dear CILIPS Member
We would like to alert you to the following 4 events. All of these are free of charge but booking is required:
Information Literacy in Scotland: Challenges and Opportunities
Information Literacy is a term common to Librarians but what does it mean to be information literate in Scotland today? As more information and services move online, how can we ensure that there is equality of access to information across the country and reduce the gap between the information rich and information poor? The Right Information, the Scottish Information Literacy Community of Practice and Scottish Library and Information Council, invite you to attend a symposium at the Scottish Government Offices on 13th February 2015 to examine the relevance of the term in relation to health, education, housing, employability and welfare reform.
The Symposium is free to attend, however places are limited. If you wish to book a place, please complete the short booking form at: https://slic.formstack.com/m/?1909203-rdaczhVOcG
Booking will close on Friday the 30th January.
