The CILIP Information Literacy Group are delighted to launch a series of 3 webinars and we are partnering with an expert team from the United States, from the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) in this series of webinars exploring the Intersections between Scholarly Communications and Information Literacy. These webinars will be free to ILG members and are offered at a reduced rate for those who wish to sign up to the series.
Webcast 3: Talking Points: Strategies for Building Collaborative Partnerships at the Intersections – Friday 5th May | 3 p.m. GMT | 9 a.m. CST
Because the intersections extend beyond traditional disciplinary or departmental boundaries, librarians must seek connections with all relevant campus stakeholders to maximize their impact.
Starting these conversations in your institution is the first step in building the connections between scholarly communication and information literacy. The third and final webcast helps participants identify potential partners for creating learning experiences and programming based on the intersections.
Presenters describe the process of aligning efforts with institutional priorities. They also explore the wide variety of educational experiences that are possible with diverse partners at a range of institutional types. Finally, presenters share planning tactics that can build momentum and enthusiasm for the intersections across your library and institution.
- Identify library and institutional priorities and goals that invite educational opportunities based on the intersections of scholarly communication and information literacy.
- Examine areas of expertise throughout your campus community in order to inform the content of your work with the intersections.
- Develop strategies for setting attainable goals in order to initiate outreach and learning initiatives at the intersections.
