Creating Knowledge & Nordic Journal of Information Literacy in Higher Education

An Easter treat (well, ok, only if you are mad for information literacy) are papers and filmed keynotes from the Creating Knowledge conference that took place at Lund University last August. Unfortunately, as it clashed with IFLA, I was not able to go, but I attended all of the previous CKs, I think, it it has always been an excellent conference. Some of the short papers are available full text as a special issue (volume 5, no. 1, 2013) of the Nordic Journal of Information Literacy in Higher Education. Some items are just abstracts, but full papers include:
- The value and impact of cross professional collaborations in developing student information and academic literacy skills at Sheffield Hallam University, UK. by Diane Rushton, Alison Lahlafi
- How does assessment affect learning: an example from a chemistry PhD-course in scholarly communication by Camilla Hertil Lindelöw
The journal home page is:
The filmed keynotes are from Olof Sundin, Gráinne Conole, Trine Schreiber and Christine Bruce and they can be accessed via the conference website at
