Guest post: ACRL Information literacy immersion program

Hong Kong by David Leo VekslarThis post comes from our Hong Kong, China Country Coordinator, Leo Ma. Leo and his colleague Lily Ko recently published an article on the ACRL Information Literacy Immersion Programme in the IFLA Asia and Oceania Section Newsletter (Issue 25, December 2013). In this article, they write about the programme content and how to share what they have learnt from this programme with their colleagues.

Leo is following up this article here with the following questions:

  • If you have any experience with this programme, would you share your views with us all?
  • If your library has any other ways to enhance the information literacy skills of your colleagues, we would love to hear from you too.

As always, please leave comments here so we can share the discussion, or you can join in on twitter using the #InterLibNet hashtag.

  1. I am again delighted to say that Fiona Bradley unfolded the open access to information through her, “Information, access and skills will unlock the data revolution” in ‘What kind of ‘data revolution’ do we need for post-2015?’.Really here with ILN on board, sharing of this information is crucial for the development of world nations. In Uganda we will be hosting The 2nd National Conference on Literacy, ie ” The Reading Association of Uganda (RAU) in collaboration with the National Book Trust
    of Uganda (NABOTU) is organizing the 2nd National Conference on Literacy under the
    theme, “Paving the Way for Literacy through Quality Learning in Uganda” to be held on
    12-13 March 2014 at Silver Springs Hotel in Kampala. The 2nd National Conference on
    Literacy will coincide with the 22nd National Book Week Festival.
