This workshop provides an excellent opportunity to hear a high-profile person speak on issues of Information Literacy. It also provides an opportunity to share and explore ideas relating to Information Literacy in the context of academic libraries, as librarians come from across North America to participate. This workshop is also attended by many of our own teaching faculty members, which challenges them to always consider their methods of instruction and encourages them to become more involved in Augustana’s own Information Literacy process at any level and in many ways.
