Information literacy is for life, not just for a good degree: a literature review by Dr C. Inskip, UCL Department of Information Studies and member of CILIP's Information Literacy Board

Information Literacy in the workplace is a new focus for CILIP and this literature review was commissioned to inform the work of the Information Literacy Board.

UK Digital Inclusion Strategy

The Government Digital Strategy published April 2014 sets out what government plans to do over the next two years to tackle the problem of digital exclusion. Some of the actions in the strategy are government-led and others will involve cross-sector partner collaboration and support.

Uk Digital Inclusion Charter

To ensure the success of the digital inclusion strategy a UK Digital Inclusion Charter  has been signed by 48 cross-sector partners so far  including CILIP. As signatories CILIP have agreed to support the joint actions of the UK Digital Inclusion Charter, actively participate in the charter signatories forum meetings and events and share knowledge and best practice.

E-safety roundtable

Library and information professionals can make a significant contribution in teaching people how to stay safe online. Knowing how to stay safe online and having the skills to manage your digital footprint brings the confidence to fully engage with and enjoy the positive benefits the online world offers. Understanding e-safety is part of the digital literacy skills set required by individuals on a personal level and in the workplace. CILIP held a Roundtable event in London on 30 September 2014 to look at the role of library and information professionals in the e-safety arena and how their skills can be put to best use through partnership working.
