Obviously I've got some catching up to do, blogging a couple more of the LILAC sessions from last week. Christine Bruce (Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane) was one of the keynote speakers. She talked inspiringly about the transformational value of information literacy, and she also discussed some of the models generated through research, including her famous "seven faces" model. Here are some links that cover some of the material she mentioned.
Concise description of the Seven Faces, on her website: Seven faces of information literacy in higher education (and obviously in lots of other publications too, including her book: Bruce, C. (1997). The Seven Faces of Information Literacy. Adelaide: Auslib Press.).
