2014 Connecticut Information Literacy Conference

Hello FYE Colleagues,

I attended the Connecticut Library Association’s  Information Literacy Conference in June at Manchester Community College, just outside Hartford. The theme was: “Our New Frontier: Metaliteracy, Threshold Concepts, New Standards, and Other Wild Ideas.” The organizers shared the video recordings, presentations and photos from the conference this morning.  The presentations were informative and will be especially relevant to First Year Experience and Freshman Year Seminar librarians.  To view copy the links into a new browser.
