CORIL ceases

The Cooperative Online Repository for Information Literacy Editorial Board has announced the end of the CORIL project. CORIL was a Canadian initiative to share materials relating to information literacy teaching, so it contains handouts, presentations and other material. To quote the announcement on the ILIG discussion list on Tuesday: "The planning involved in creating CORIL and the process of implementing and sustaining it over the past five years, represents significant deliberation and commitment by many of our colleagues.

Material in the repository will remain available for the foreseeable future, however no new content will be added." To see what is there go to
