Event description

Description

Following 2015's successful event, we are pleased to invite you to another Digital and Information Literacy Symposium at Atlantic Quay.

What does it mean to be information and digitally literate in Scotland today? As more information and services move online, how can we ensure that there is equality of access to information across the country and reduce the gap between the information rich and information poor?

The Scottish Library and Information Council, and the Right Information, the Scottish Information Literacy Community of Practice invite you to attend a symposium on Friday 18th November 2016 to examine the relevance of digital and information literacy in relation to health, education, housing, employability and welfare reform.

The Symposium is free to attend, however places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
