The ACRL Instruction Section Research & Scholarship Committee is pleased to offer the content of its Midwinter 2008 Discussion Forum, “Research Into Action: Leveraging Research Into IL Instruction” on the IS Website. An audio recording of the session is available to download or stream, and a PDF of the forum’s Recommended Reading List is also available.
The forum was held on January 13, 2008 in Philadelphia and featured panelists Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe and Scott Walter of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Michelle L. Zafron from the University at Buffalo.
The ACRL Board of Directors approved the new Information Literacy Standards for Anthropology and Sociology Students at the 2008 ALA Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia. The standards were developed by the ACRL Anthropology and Sociology Section (ANSS) Instruction and Information Literacy Committee Task Force on IL Standards.
These standards make a valuable addition to ACRL’s growing collection of discipline-specific information literacy standards.
Karen Markey, faculty member at The University of Michigan Library School of Information is asking for an institution and/or individual to collaborate on testing an information literacy online board game they have designed under the auspices of a grant from the Delmas Foundation.
