Editor's Notes

  • In this keynote, Dr Jane Secker, Chair of the UK’s Information Literacy Group will report on findings from a survey carried out in the summer 2020 to collect data about the shift to online information literacy teaching that librarians were experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With libraries closed to visitors in the UK and many universities and schools teaching entirely online she will provide further details about how UK librarians have shifted their teaching online, and discuss the opportunities and challenges that this has created. She will also share some case studies from UK librarians which the group are collecting online to highlight good practice. Finally there will be an opportunity to ask questions and share your own experiences.
  • So I have thought about IL for quite a long time and why it’s important, how to support IL and develop it in students and others. And of course why it matters. I wouldn’t be chair of the IL group if I didn’t think it matters.
  • ILG response to share resources related to COVID-19 and promote high quality resources and tackle misinformation
    Ran a CILIP Training event in May on teaching information in practice and this was shifted online
    Launched a survey to find out what the community was doing
