Exploring the intersections of information literacy and scholarly communications

The one-day event Exploring the intersections of information literacy and scholarly communications is on 2 December 2019, at Liverpool Central Library, Liverpool, UK. Cost is £85 to ILG members, £100 to non-members. "Inspired by ACRL’s 2013 report: Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy: Creating Strategic Collaborations for a Changing Academic Environment we will seek to explore how we can move away from institutional separation of information literacy and scholarly communication matters to encourage new perspectives for our advocacy work with academics and students in these areas. The day will build on aspects of a popular session from this year’s LILAC conference: Information Literacy and Open Access: two movements one aim? Through presentations and activities we will identify key areas where information literacy and open access intersect and how librarians might be able to leverage this support to engage key stakeholders and support both agendas." Sessions from:
-Dr Elizabeth Gadd (Loughborough University): Research evaluation literacy: skilling up for responsible research evaluation
- Padma Inala and John Hynes (University of Manchester) “Opening the door”: looking towards an ‘open’ dialogue as part of the student experience.
- Claire Sewell (University of Cambridge): Which Way Now? Supporting Librarians' Skills in an Ever Changing Landscape.
- Chris Morrison (University of Kent) The value of the CLA licence and open access to support teaching
