Two new research projects in IL funded by bursary scheme

 

CILIP ILG bursaries for research into the experiences of refugees and information literacy

Two significant new research projects have been approved under the CILIP Information Literacy Group Research Bursary scheme.

 

One will look at the information practices and experiences of New Syrian Scots refugees who are resettling in Scotland.

 

The second seeks to understand how mis-information influences young people’s psychological, physical, and behavioural reactions to functioning with a person with perceived extremist views - and whether there is a link between these reactions and people's level of ability to make sound judgements about information they are presented.

Digital and Information Literacy Symposium 18th November 2016

What does it mean to be information and digitally literate in Scotland today?

 

This is the central question as more information and services move online.

The Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC) and The Right Information, the Scottish Information Literacy Community of Practice, are hosting a Digital and Information Literacy Symposium on Friday 18th November 2016 in Glasgow.

Held at the Scottish Government Office, Atlantic Quay, the seminar will examine the relevance of digital and information literacy in relation to health, education, housing, employability and welfare reform.

A central theme will be how we ensure equality of access to information across the country and reduce the gap between the information rich and information poor.

The all-day event includes six speakers as well as the chance to network with colleagues across various disciplines and sectors. The Symposium is free to attend however places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Booking closes on Monday 7th November.
