International school libraries conference: also online #IASL2015

The 44th Annual International Conference & 17th International Forum on Research in School Librarianship takes place June 28 - July 2, 2015. The main conference is in Maastricht, The Netherlands. However, I mainly want to highlight that you can view a livestream of many conference presentations. You do not get alternatives, but certainly the provisional programme provides a full stream of sessions over the length of the conference. This includes numerous ones which are relevant to information literacy e.g. "Transformation, transfer, transition: what the school librarian can do in transliteracy, the French context" "Inquiry learning: educating librarians for their educational role" "Igniting the passion: Practical ways to engage and inspire our students to learn through the school library!". There is a fee (between 75 and 125 Euros depending on which region of the world you come from) http://iasl2015.org/online-conference/
