Information Literacy: From Classroom to Workplace (Room 2)

A session at 2016 Maryland Library Association & Delaware Library Association Joint Annual Conference

Thursday 5th May, 2016

3:00pm to 4:00pm (EST)

Location: Room 2

Information Literacy is part of every human activity including the social processes that shape information and how it is used within a given context. IL is not confined to formal learning environments. IL as understood in academia tends to focus on developing particular skills at locating research products rather than on the student’s effectiveness in “navigating, shaping, adapting to, or influencing information contexts.” This session will consider the differences between information practices in the classroom and the workplace and the challenges students face as they prepare to solve information problems in the workplace.
