Webinar: Global Perspectives on Information Literacy

On 28 February at 11am US Eastern time (which is 4pm UK time) there will be an online forum with Merinda Kaye Hensley and Dr. Emma Coonan, which is the first in a series of events related to a forthcoming report, Global Perspectives on Information Literacy: Fostering a dialogue for international understanding. Edited by the ACRL Student Learning and Information Literacy Committee, the report has thirteen chapters written by authors from Africa, Canada, Europe, Oceania, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. It will be published in March 2017. The foreword to the report is already available here: "Hensley and Coonan will outline the genesis of the white paper, as well as introduce the themes and highlights emerging from the work. Future programming and opportunities to engage with the authors, including a ACRL 2017 Conference panel and discussion, will be outlined." Register at
