The IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions) World Congress will be in the U.S. this year, and you have the opportunity to participate in one of the IFLA pre-conferences in Chicago. Registration is now open for “Information and Artifactual Literacies: Engaging Minds in Libraries and Museums”, the IFLA Information Literacy Section Satellite, co-sponsored by ACRL and DePaul University, on August 11-12, 2016. Visit the satellite pre-conference website to register and take advantage of early bird rates.
Curiosity and critical thinking skills are habits of mind that librarians, archivists, and museum educators strive to develop and exercise in their students, researchers, and visitors. The pre-conference will feature the myriad and innovative ways in which primary sources, special collections, and museum resources can be integrated into instructional programs. Don’t miss the chance to be part of this international experience.
