Following the success of Mount Allison University's first Information
Literacy Institute last year, plans for the second are well underway, and
this year will be open to librarians, library staff, faculty, and academic
staff from across the region. The purpose of the Institute is to share
knowledge and experiences with information literacy for undergraduate
students, with a focus on faculty involvement.  So if you know of faculty
members who may be interested, please pass this message along to them.

The day-long event will be held on May 18, at Mount Allison University.  At
this year's Institute, Mount Allison faculty members will present some of
the interesting approaches to information literacy they are taking in their
courses. There will be a summary of the results of a recent survey of
faculty perceptions of information literacy skills, and a session on
teaching and assessing IL skills with a focus on plagiarism.  Guest speaker
Sharon Murphy will give a version of her upcoming WILU presentation on
integrating information literacy into a departmental curriculum at
Dalhousie University.

Cost for the Institute is $35 and includes refreshment breaks and
lunch.  The deadline for registration is May 14.
