WILU 2006 - Keynote

The keynote speaker at WILU 2006 was Patricia Senn-Breivik. She has a new book coming out, Higher Education in the Internet Age. One of the best parts of her presentation was the viewing of a short video called What is Information Literacy? It was developed by the UCLA Graduate School of Education and Information Studies. It's a good lead in to talking about information literacy although we might take issue with one of the final statements - "information is information - no more, no less".
