Event Report – On the Move: transitioning information skills into the workplace

The following post has been reposted with permission from Charlie Inskip’s Research Blog

We were very happy to greet around 75 enthusiastic librarians and careers professionals from around the country to UCL on Friday 2nd Feb last week to the “On The Move: transitioning information skills into the workplace” event. We heard great talks by Marc Forster, Megan Wiley, Laura Brammar and Rosalind Kemp about their perspectives on workplace information literacy and had an opportunity to present our final report on the CILIP ILG-funded project.

Alison Hicks chaired us all very efficiently and provided helpful context and wrapping up, as well as an insightful Twitter commentary (#otmucldis).

There’ll be a full write-up in a forthcoming issue of Information Professional. If you’d like to keep posted on developments please follow our Twitter or follow this blog via the signup button nearby. We are grateful to the funders, all of the presenters, our helpers, and of course all the attendees and research participants.
