ILIG Takes a New Approach

Ah, it's April and exam time at many academic institutions. A time where many librarians go...pfew...now where did I leave off with that project I was working on? Or is that just me? In any case, I wanted to take this short interlude to see if it's possible to bring back some life to the Information Literacy Interest Group.

In the last week or so, I created a facebook group for ILIG. Facebook is a social networking tool and is really effective in connecting people. Many different groups have sprung up on facebook, where members can discuss various topics and group administrators can communicate effectively with their group members. As many librarians are already on facebook, I thought it would be a great place for ILIG.

So please consider this your invitation to come and join ILIG on facebook! Many have already found the group and are waiting for you to join us.

How to Join:

1. Create yourself an account on facebook.
2. Navigate to the ILIG Group.
3. Click on the Join this Group link on the ILIG Group page.
4. Post a comment on the Wall to let us know you've joined!
5. Contribute to any of the existing discussions, or start a new topic.

I'm looking forward to seeing you on facebook!


PS: Anyone with an interest in Information Literacy is welcome to join.
