Thursday in Information Literacy Week in SL

Today there is an orientation event, but this is now full. There are ongoing exhibitions as follows. The pictures are of the HIV and health literacy exhibits.

HIV Testing and Information Literacy
Karuna Island is the Second Life sim devoted to celebrating the lives of those dealing with HIV/AIDS and making information, support, and creative services available to them in the SL community. Robin Mochi, Karuna Island Consumer Health Librarian, has created an interactive mindmap on HIV Testing using the SCONUL 7 Pillars of Information Literacy.

Student exhibition of Information Literacy
First year BSc Information Management students at the University of Sheffield display the models of the "SCONUL 7 Pillars of Information Literacy" which they have adapted with examples from questions to do with Swine Flu.

Health Literacy exhibit
Health Literacy is important to help you understand and manage your health care decisions and needs. Our interactive exhibit will test your knowledge about stroke (brain attack), heart attack and some common medical terminology. Come learn at our Health Literacy exhibit at Health Info Island! Exhibit organised by Brielle Coronet, Medical Librarian
