Information literacy communities of practice in a converged service

  1. 1. Information literacy communities of practice in a converged service Clare McCluskey IFLA Satellite Meeting, Limerick 14 August 2014
  2. 2. Background • Converged service – Library – ICT – Media – Print • Where does information literacy fit? • Is Information Learning Services a learning organisation?
  3. 3. Learning organisation • Staff development based on shared values (Camille and Wu 2010) • Learning for both service users and staff (Bergat and d’Elia 2010) • Information literacy at core of our learning
  4. 4. Information Literacy • Those in roles focusing on IL need to be as high priority for IL training as those on periphery (Pagell and Munoo 2010) • Users of an information service rarely distinguish between staff in different roles (Sult and Evangeliste 2009)

  7. 7. Key points • Divide between practice-based and wider learning concepts – Referencing vs ethics of information use – Information searching vs evaluation of resources – Current awareness services vs ongoing learning
  8. 8. Acknowledgements With thanks to Katy Wrathall for initiating the project and providing the framework within which it took place.
