(via Sheila Stoeckel, University of Wisconsin-Madison)

The ACRL Student Learning & Information Literacy Committee has two events open to all ALA Annual attendees:

SLILC Discussion Forum: Where Do We Stand? The Accreditation Process and the Library
Saturday, June 23, 10:30-11:30 AM
Morial Convention Center, Rm 218-219
Accreditation is an issue that affects all librarians at all higher education institutions, whether or not the librarian is a direct participant in their institution’s accreditation process. This discussion forum will address the issue of accreditation from a variety of different perspectives. Following a brief presentation on the instances of information literacy in the different accreditation bodies, participants will engage in a variety of group activities on the topic of accreditation and the library’s participation or lack of it. Attendees of this workshop could have no, little, or extensive experience with accreditation.

SLILC Discussion Forum: ACRL Striking the Match for Inspired Teaching
Sunday, June 24, 10:30-11:30 AM

Inspiration can happen during a conversation, when reading, and even at a conference! Join this panel presentation to hear about ACRL programs that inspire educational innovation for hundreds of library instruction teachers every year.
