Workshop on Instruction in Library Use (WILU) Call for Papers

Workshop on Instruction in Library Use (WILU) Call for Papers. Tanja Harrison sent me anote about this opportunity in Nova Scotia in May 2006. She wrote that, "This is a Canadian grassroots conference which has become the national forum for library instruction, bringing together librarians to share best practices and theories in all areas of information literacy."

From the site:

The 35th Annual Workshop on Instruction in Library Use will be held at Acadia University in Wolfville, Nova Scotia from May 10-12, 2006.

The theme of this year's conference is Charting a Course for Instruction. The WILU35 programme will bring together teaching librarians from all environments, disciplines, and ideologies to discuss advances in the theory and practice of information literacy. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

- mentoring between new and mid-career librarians
- collaborating with administration to establish and promote information literacy programs
- working with educators across the curriculum
- providing peer support and techniques for keeping connected
- partnering between school and academic libraries

We welcome proposals for one-and-a-half-hour sessions and three-hour workshops related to the theme of the conference. Submissions are due by Monday, November 28, 2005. Online proposal submission forms are available.
