Visitors from University of Cape Town

We were visited this week by Karin de Jager (left) and Mary Nassimbeni (Centre for Information Literacy/Department of Information Studies, University of Cape Town, South Africa). We discussed library and information curricula and our own work in information literacy. They talked about their own work in Information Literacy and libraries, including work with public libraries, school libraries and academic libraries; meeting with staff and students in the Department.
