2024 Information Literacy Award – Student Award

There’s still time to make a nomination for the 2024 Information Literacy Award and apply for the Student Award.

Information Literacy Award

The CILIP Information Literacy Group and the Information School at the University of Sheffield are proud to offer an award for achievement in the field of information literacy (IL). The award is open to all practitioners, researchers and academics working in the IL field within the UK.

Nominations must demonstrate impact, innovation, initiative, and originality in one or more of the following areas:

  • Raising the profile of IL within an organisation / community or sector
  • Initiating or contributing to national, regional, or local projects / initiatives which enhance IL skills for an identified client group(s)
  • Developing a digital resource (e.g., online course, service, product, or app) which develops and enhances IL skills
  • Undertaking original research in the field of IL and making a significant contribution to the literature

It’s a great way to have your work recognised, both in and outside of the information literacy field, but don’t just take our word for it. Past winners recently shared their thoughts on what winning the Information Literacy Award meant to them on the ILG Blog.

Nominations may be from any sector, individuals and groups/teams can self-nominate or nominate others. Find out more on the LILAC website.

Rowena Macrae-Gibson Student Award

The Rowena Macrae-Gibson Student Award provides a sponsored place at LILAC for two students registered on a UK study programme. The award includes a full conference place, including social events, and UK travel and accommodation expenses up to the value of £250.

Find out more on the LILAC website.

The closing date for both awards is Friday 2 February 2024 (17:00 GMT).
The LILAC conference logoThe logo for the LILAC 2024 conference. The logo says 2024 Leeds but the number 0 is replaced with an image of an owl. A number of Leeds Beckett University’s constituent colleges at various times during their history featured the owl as their emblem, this included the City of Leeds Training College, the original occupants of Headingley Campus. Below 2024 Leeds it says LILAC: the information literacy conference. The logo is the colour lilac.
