The UK General Election may now be several weeks behind us, but CILIP’s #FactsMatter campaign continues! Help us “take a stand” and promote information literacy for all.
Nick Poole, Chief Executive of CILIP, and colleagues from the CILIP Information Literacy Group (ILG) were on hand at the recent CILIP Conference 2017 in Manchester to promote the ongoing campaign and to unveil a new downloadable postcard featuring Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales.
The CILIP Information Literacy Group is delighted to be involved in this campaign as part of its information literacy advocacy work.
The Facts Matter campaign champions the value of quality information and evidence for learning, to our economy, to health and healthcare, in democracy and for equal, inclusive communities. Information literacy is at the heart of this campaign, which encourages everyone to be discerning users of information and to check the facts behind the story.
CILIP and ILG are asking the library, information and knowledge community to take a stand with us to show that #FactsMatter.
