Preconference - CLA 2007 in St. John's
tick tick tick
The deadline is approaching for preconference proposals for the CLA conference 2007. (Actually we've been granted an extension to September 5).
I know that the timing is horrendous for those working in schools / colleges / universities! But if you would like to comment and/or add speaker ideas, please comment on this blog.
Here are some titles / themes:
- Forget the information literacy theory: voices from the trenches
- Has Information Literacy Failed?
- Information Literacy in Canada: Where do we go from here?
- Information Literacy: Why the disconnect?
Perhaps my somewhat gloomy ideas (they're really not) come from my (mostly) agreement with a recent article by Peter James Williams.
If there's enough interest or ideas and volunteers I'll get the ball rolling on a proposal.

Want to host WILU 2008?
As many of you know, we are pleased to be hosting WILU 2007 at York next May. One of our duties, along with the chairs of WILU 2006 is to find a host for WILU 2008. If you are interested, check out the selection criteria and send us a letter. Preferably the conference will go west next year, following the pattern that has been established. However, there is flexibility, so if you're keen -- we'd love to hear from you.
