The International Information Literacies Research Network
At the COLIS2010 conference the new International Information Literacies Research Network was publicised. "The Network brings together researchers with a shared interest in information literacies research and will focus on sociocultural approaches to understanding information literacies, while acknowledging variation regarding methodological approaches amongst researchers. Through collective efforts our intention is to build a network that can benefit from and enhance research on information literacy practices. The network will enable formalised international research cooperation within small or large scale projects, and it will provide opportunities for researchers and research students to meet and learn from each other." There is a blog/website at http://iilresearch.wordpress.com/ and there is also a Facebook group (search on the name of the network), you have to apply for membership, rather than everyone being able to just join.
