Corfu Summer School on Information Know-How for Professionals



The CILIP Information Literacy Group is pleased to support an international summer school on information know-how for professionals, taking place on the beautiful island of Corfu in July 2016.

Participants will be able to develop their expertise in key information literacy techniques and share experience with representatives from a variety of sectors, all amongst the stunning scenery and rich culture of this popular Greek isle.

The summer school is a four-day practical workshop situated in the picturesque and beautiful setting of the Ionian University. It is aimed at professionals and researchers at all levels of experience, and is designed to equip participants with real-world applied knowledge that could make a difference to their information-based organisational practices by:

  • bringing together participants (from different sectors – e.g. health, government, libraries, science, business, education – and diverse areas of work) with an interest in developing expertise around techniques for searching, evaluating, organising and communicating information;
  • offering a vehicle for the exchange of cross-professional, interdisciplinary and intercultural knowledge around the development of digital information skills and the use of digital information in the workplace.

The international summer school has been organised by the Department of Archives, Library Science and Museology at the Ionian University, Corfu, Greece & the Department of Information Management (iSchool) in Aberdeen, Scotland.

The event is supported by the CILIP Information Literacy Group.
