New online Information Literacy Journal Club: 17th Jan at 8pm UK time!

The first Information Literacy online Journal Club discussion is on Thursday January 17th 2013 and will take place via blog-posts. The live discussion will start at 8pm UK time (which is 3pm US Eastern Time, see for times elesewhere) and end at 9.15pm. We will be discussing the 2011 revision of the SCONUL 7 Pillars model of information literacy, available here: The 7 Pillars diagram is reproduced on the right (under a Creative Commons license). This is the UK's chief framework for information literacy in Higher/Further Education, and the first edition came out in 1999.

The Journal Club discussion will take place in the comments beneath an introductory blog post on the Journal Club blog: You can start adding comments now if you want.
The live discussion hosted by Niamh Tumelty and me (Sheila Webber) will be between 8pm and 9.15pm on 17th January. As facilitators, we will be aiming keep the discussion going and introduce the questions through the session.People can also contribute to the discussion by commenting (on the topic or the format for discussion) after the 17th January.

The idea is to hold these monthly, so do keep in touch with the Journal Club blog:
I am also continuing to co-organise the Journal Club meetings in Second Life, by the way.
