Summary of IFLA information literacy conference

Here’s a list of all my blog posts from this conference:

Some ideas which didn’t quite fit in the other blog posts:

  • Not addressing information literacy well in schools creates a problem for universities
  • Today’s students are no longer the people our education system was designed to teach
  • Encourage students to use Zotero – universities  subscribe to e.g. RefWorks, but if they use that, they’ll lose all their info when their student status ends

It was a great conference – friendly people, fab venue at the University of Tampere, amazing food, free wifi.

Pulla and coffee

I think I’ve got a new favourite country, and it’s Finland.

Update: speakers’ presentations are now available on the conference website
