LILAC News: paper accepted, bursaries and awards nominations announced; 

Plans and news from LILAC are coming thick and fast.

Paper accepted - the paper I submitted has been accepted - so good news there. The paper is on the community of practice 'Information Skills for a 21st century Scotland: a National Information Literacy Community of Practice'. I'm going to look at the achievements and lessons learned from the Scottish Information Literacy project; what a community of practice is; what the online information literacy community of practice: Information Skills for a 21st century Scotland  looks like and reflect on what has been achieved to date by this community of practice with no budget or funding but through the generosity of people and organisations’ time and commitment to the community; the benefits of a community of practice; what has worked and what hasn’t; lessons learned and the challenges it faces. 

LILAC bursaries announced - three conference places are being offered for the following sectors: Shools/FE, Public, Health. For details see Closing date 7th February 2014 at 17:00 GMT.
