"The broad focus of this satellite meeting is information literacy (IL) and its impact, especially on women. We are interested in library and information professionals working on information literacy in all sectors, but in particular in public libraries and local community centres. At the same time we want to know about research projects on the impact this work has on women in local communities and the society as a whole. Examples of best practices, success stories and lessons learned are very welcome."
