The Road to Information Literacy: Librarians as Facilitators of Training

By Susan Schnuer

Talking, eating, and engagement were the main activities at the August Satellite meeting in Tampere.127 librarians from 21 countries attended the 2012 IFLA satellite meeting, a wonderful cross-section of ideas, cultures, and languages.  The satellite was co-sponsored by CPDWL and IL IFLA sections and it was successful cooperative effort.  This is the largest number of participants that CPDWL has ever had at a satellite meeting and in fact there was a waiting list.

Over 45 presentations were given during the meeting from librarians engaged in professional development and information literacy from all parts of the library sector: schools, public, academic, special, and LIS schools.  The variety of sessions and the amazing range of speakers made for a very engaging and yet intimate sessions.
