New Professionals

ILG New Professionals Sub-committee

The Sub-committee was set up in 2021 to bring together new professionals (defined as having less than 5 years’ professional experience, or a student) who are interested in information literacy to contribute to the work of the Information Literacy Group (ILG). The group provides opportunities for new professionals to work with and be mentored by ILG committee members to: develop professional support for members, including through organising training, events, blog posts, etc; represent the views and experiences of new professionals to the broader ILG; and gain insight into policy and committee work.

Get involved in our Randomised Coffee Trials

Randomised Coffee Trials match two new professionals and offer them the chance to network, find support and discuss information literacy with a peer from beyond their immediate workplace or sector. We organise a new round on a roughly bi-annual basis and try to accommodate participants’ preferences for being matched with a colleague from a particular sector. Sign up to our mailing list if you’d like to be notified when the next Randomised Coffee Trial is taking place.

Our podcast, Chatting Info Lit, is new for 2023! We talk to people who have recently joined the profession, as well as those with more experience about where they started, projects they have been involved with and information literacy within their sector.
