Whether your library is about to implement the Summon® service, or already have the Summon service or another discovery tool, you’ve probably spent some time thinking about how web-scale discovery impacts your information literacy teaching. Have you hardly changed your approach or have you had a radical rethink?

These questions and more will be discussed at the 2nd UK Information Literacy & Summon Day coming up on the 25th of July, hosted by Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU).

For those who can’t attend the event in person, we are pleased to offer the opportunity to view two sessions through live streaming:

  • Main Presentations (10:10 AM - 1:00 PM London / 5:10 AM – 8:00 AM New York ) - Speakers present their ideas and experiences regarding Summon and information literacy to an audience in the usual way.
  • Lightning Talks (1:30 PM - 1:50 PM London / 8:30 AM – 8:50 AM New York) - Speakers quickly demonstrate how they teach Summon, treating the audience as they would their library users.

Feel free to attend one session or both!  Simply register and attend as much or as little as fits into your schedule.  And if you can’t watch live, after the event we’ll provide details on how to access the recordings of these sessions.
