Information Literacy Common Interest Group (Inactive) (INFOLIT)

Years active:

NOTE: Beginning July 2013, the University of California Libraries launched a revised advisory structure. The groups within the previous structure are no longer active, including this group. See UC Libraries Advisory Structure (UCLAS) for information about the current structure.

Group Description

Information Literacy is charged to:

  • Survey the UC libraries and annually update the “Information Literacy: Campus Initiatives and Contacts” web page to provide an overview of the scope of information literacy activities currently underway in the System.
  • Develop and support strategies for sharing information about those information literacy activities that might lead to collaboration and cooperation among the UC libraries.
  • Propose training, workshops, or other mechanisms for promoting and enhancing information literacy initiatives for the University of California Libraries for the future.
