*WILU 2005:  A Kaleidoscope of possibilities*
May 18 - 20, 2005
University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario


This year's program will challenge participants to reflect on the
placement of information literacy in the broader context of other forms
of literacy.  Join us to explore a broad range of the theories and
practices of the many faces of literacy: reading and writing, computer,
information, media, visual, statistical and academic literacy.  What
role do libraries and librarians play in addressing, promoting, and
collaborating with partners to advance these forms of literacy?
