UBC Library is pleased to announce that we are hosting WILU 2016<> from May 30 - June 2016 at the Point Grey Campus.

The Workshop for Instruction in Library Use (WILU) is Canada's only conference devoted to library instruction, information literacy, and information fluency. Sessions explore both research-based and applied subject matter, and are attended by librarians from Canada, the United States, and beyond with a variety of teaching and learning interests. It is notable that WILU is not affiliated with any association or organizing body - instead, since its inception in 1972, it has been sustained and passed on from year to year through the collaborative efforts of hosting institutions.

The theme of the WILU 2016 conference is Intersections and the Call for Proposals<> is open until 5pm on December 7, 2015.

Types of Sessions

  *   Oral Presentations - These 45-minute sessions are grounded in formal research or applied practice, which include a 35-minute presentation and a 10-minute question/discussion period.
  *   Lightning Talks - Lightning talks are 7-minute timed presentations that are meant to present new, innovative, provocative or controversial ideas.
  *   Posters - Posters will be displayed during a one-hour time slot. Presenters will be expected to accompany their poster to discuss and answer questions. Mounting boards for posters will be provided.
  *   Pre-Conference Workshop - Pre-Conference workshops are 2.5 hour participatory workshops on one aspect of the theory, practice and/or social/political dynamics of information literacy instruction. Successful workshops will incorporate active learning elements and will require participation of attendees.
