Infolit blog-comment journal club on 24 July: #ilread outrageous claims

Space to thinkThe next online online blog-comment information literacy Journal Club meeting takes place at 8-9 pm UK time on Wednesday 24th July 2013 (see http://tinyurl.com/ow3kfxz for times elsewhere). It will take place on the Infolit Journal Club blog http://infolitjournalclub.blogspot.com/, as a discussion in blog comments.

The topic will be Barbara Fister's stimulating keynote paper, aimed at academic librarians, presented at the LOEX (USA information literacy) conference in May. The paper is online at:
Fister, B. (2013) Decode academy. Paper presented at LOEX, 3 May 2013. http://homepages.gac.edu/~fister/loex13.pdf
In the paper, she makes some "outrageous claims" (e.g. "We should stop teaching students how to find sources" "Very rarely are citations needed") and everyone is welcome to come along and add as much or as little as they want to the discussion ;-)
