IL track at CoLIS8 in Copenhagen 2013

27 September, 2012

The iilresearch network will host an information literacies track at next year’s CoLIS in Copenhagen, Denmark. We are hoping that this will mean that a number of interesting information literacies research papers will be presented. This continues the IL presence at the CoLIS conference from London in 2010 where we gathered for a popular research seminar. There will also be a new award: the iilresearch Best Information Literacies Paper Award will be given to the best paper!

The call for papers can be found at and is also republished below. See also the conference web site:

Hope to see you in Copenhagen next year!
