We were delighted to have such a great line up for our “Literacy in all its forms – digital, academic, information, health, and more” Spring Forum, in the wonderful venue of the Royal Society of Medicine.
Improving literacy has always been at the core of a librarians role, but the definition of literacy is evolving all the time, not least with the new definition of Information Literacy released by CILIP in 2018. This spring forum is about all things literacy – information, health, digital and more.
Our speakers did us proud.
