Information Literacy Journal Club 21 July

The Information Literacy Journal Club is an online discussion group focusing on information literacy. It takes place on the Club's blog, through blog-post discussion. The next event is on Thursday 21 July 2016 at 12 noon UK time (which is 7am US Eastern time, see here for times elsewhere). Pat Sandercock (Instructional and Reference Librarian at the College of the North Atlantic-Qatar) will be leading discussion on her own open-access article:
Sandercock, P. (2016). Instructor perceptions of student information literacy: comparing international IL models to reality. Journal of Information Literacy, 10(1), 3–29.

Everyone is welcome to participate, whether you are a current library and information student, an established information professional or just generally interested in the subject area. You can participate live 12 noon-1pm UK time on the 21st, or add comments afterwards (or beforehand!) The blog is moderated except for the day of the live discussion, so at those times there will be a short delay before your post appears.

To participate in the discussion, just visit the Journal Club’s homepage and comment on the latest blog post. More information is available from this page, in which Pat introduces her article. If you would like to see an example of how the sessions work in practice, you can take a look at the previous discussion posts, e.g. this one.
