Registration is now open for the 16th Annual Information Literacy Summit. This year’s event, themed “From Teaching to Learning: Context and Collaboration”, will take place on Friday, May 5, from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM. The DePaul University Library and the Moraine Valley Community College Library will host the meeting, which will take place on the Moraine Valley Community College campus, in Palos Hills. (The Library is located at 9000 West College Parkway.) Registration is for $45 for attendees and $25 for speakers, and it covers breakfast, lunch, and conference materials.

The keynote address, titled “Boundaries and Sovereignties: Placing Students at the Center of Information Literacy”, will be given by Wendy Holliday, who serves as the Head of Teaching, Learning, and Research Services at Northern Arizona University’s Cline Library. Using the metaphors of boundaries and thresholds, this talk will examine some of the recent discourse around the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy and the purpose of higher education. It will explore what might happen when we place students and the idea of sovereignty at the center of our conceptions of information literacy.

Who should attend the Summit?

• librarians who are involved with teaching and learning in almost any aspect

• academic, school, public, and special librarians

• teachers and other educators who want to discuss information literacy, student research, and student use of information
