Librarians on Retreat Tuesday

Posted on behalf of Sophie Bury:

Librarians will get together Tuesday to discuss Information Literacy and Graduate Students.

“The Information Literacy Committee very much looks forward to welcoming (librarians) at our IL Retreat on May 6th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Scott staff lounge to focus on the theme of Information Literacy & graduate students. Refreshments will be served.

I thank the IL committee for all their hard work and creativity in coming up with an agenda which we hope you will find interesting, thought provoking, and engaging. Through a combination of presentations, group discussions, panels, and group exercises we aim to explore a number of themes, to learn from each other, and to share with you a number of materials, which you can take away to help with your information literacy practice with graduate students in the future.

Reading materials:

1. IL Retreat Agenda

2. Executive summary of the findings and recommendations from the survey and focus groups conducted with graduate students at York. There is a main report and an addendum. Please try to read the report. A big huge thanks to Mary Kandiuk who took on the task of preparing this.

3. Group Exercise Outline
The one titled Group exercise basically allows you to see what we have in mind in advance for the retreat group exercise activity, and how the groups have been set up. The other document on the ACRL IL standards is recommended optional additional reading.

4. Two short articles (three pages each) selected by Sarah and Rajiv who kindly conducted a literature review. They discuss the practical implementation of findings of graduate student surveys.
