The CILIP Information Literacy Group need your help to promote the importance of information literacy across all sectors! As practitioners in your respective fields, you could make a real difference in helping to communicate the value of information literacy to particular sectors and to society as a whole.
You are invited to submit a short video (max. one minute) on why information literacy is important in your sector, e.g. public, health, schools, FE, HE, corporate, etc. The video can be as simple or as imaginative as you like, but make sure you address the topic clearly and concisely. Don’t forget to say who you are and which sector you work in!
All entrants to the competition will be entered into a prize draw for the opportunity to win a £100 voucher for an online store of their choice!
