The Newsletter of the Information Literacy Section is available and some of the highlights includes:
- Using RSS feeds for current awareness – this isn’t really 2009 technology, but it’s nice that libraries are incorporating it in their patron training. What was nice is that the Univ. of Technology (Sydney) created their own catalogue gadget for iGoogle!
- The NHS Scotland has developed an Information Literacy Portal which helps patrons through the information literacy cycle
- The Finnish and British InfoLit librarians cooperated on information literacy work in those two countries
- It includes a list of books that inspire InfoLit librarians – the list is quite exhausitve and includes some online stuff as well – it’s well worth a click if InfoLit is your speciality
- Upcoming events in Bangladesh, Italy, Scotland and Norway
It includes loads more but these seemed the most interesting to me!
