SCONUL Seven Pillars of Information Literacy

Our first discussion will take place January (date to be announced) and will consider the recently revised SCONUL 7 Pillars model of information literacy, available here.

An introductory post will go online in early January, and the conversation will continue in the comments beneath that blog post.  You can also write your reflections on your own blog now or later (just make sure to tag it ILread and give us the link) or comment on Twitter using #ILread.

If you'd like to start reading around the subject now, you might like to think about one/some of the following areas:
  • The various lenses that are already available for this model (e.g. the Research lens) - or the ones that have not yet been written but you think should be
  • Comparison with other models or information literacy standards
  • Thoughts on how this theoretical model can be applied in practice
  • Anything else you think relevant!
