Celebrating Global Media and Information Literacy Week, the event will be of interest to researchers, practitioners and students who are engaged with Information Literacy, and also to people who are interested in carrying out information literacy research themselves. Talks will include a focus on information literacy and older people [that's my bit!]; bibliometric studies of information literacy, psycho-physiology and information literacy, the UK information literacy research agenda, internet access and information literacy, and a presentation of the recent Facet title, The Qualitative Landscape of Information Literacy Research.
