As part of my ‘Information Resources and Information Literacy’ module, we were asked to produce group posters on how information literacy would be relevant to our future careers, which were then displayed in an event which some of the Information School attended.
In my group there were four of us. Although we all wanted generally wanted to work in libraries, it was quite interesting to see how varied it was in the type of library we would prefer.
For our poster we decided on the design I suggested (woo!), which was using the seven SCONUL Pillars of Information Literacy in an Acropolis style building, with ourselves standing atop, supported by information literacy. I must say, the poster was fantastic. Props to my team-mate Jen especially, who did a lot of work on it at home.
It was really interesting to see everyone else’s posters, and it was fascinating to see how different the career paths were for the class.
One particular poster I was very impressed with looked at Information Literacy in relation to working as an Information Manager. I was gushing about this poster for ages after the event, because everything on it was so well thought out and meantsomething.
