Booking now: Exploring the intersections of information literacy and scholarly communication



The CILIP Information Literacy Group is pleased to announce a one-day event exploring the intersections of information literacy and scholarly communications.

Event: Exploring the intersections of information literacy and scholarly communication

Date: Monday, 2nd December 2019, 10am – 4.00pm

Venue: Liverpool Central Library

This event is aimed at information literacy practitioners and library staff working in scholarly communications.

Event summary:

Inspired by ACRL’s 2013 report: Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy: Creating Strategic Collaborations for a Changing Academic Environment, we will seek to explore how we can move away from institutional separation of information literacy and scholarly communication matters to encourage new perspectives for our advocacy work with academics and students in these areas. The day will build on aspects of a popular session from this year’s LILAC conference: “Information Literacy and Open Access: two movements one aim?”

Through presentations and activities, we will identify key areas where information literacy and open access intersect and how librarians might be able to leverage this support to engage key stakeholders and support both agendas.

Chaired by Dr Jane Secker, the day will feature:

  • Dr Elizabeth Gadd (Loughborough University): Research evaluation literacy: skilling up for responsible research evaluation
  • Padma Inala and John Hynes (University of Manchester): “Opening the door”: looking towards an ‘open’ dialogue as part of the student experience
  • Claire Sewell (University of Cambridge): Which Way Now? Supporting Librarians’ Skills in an Ever Changing Landscape
  • Chris Morrison (University of Kent): The value of the CLA licence and open access to support teaching

Event costs cover all-day participation, lunch and refreshments. We hope you can join us for an interesting day with lively discussion.
