New Nordic Initiative on Information Literacy

In connection with the conference, a new brainstorming group with
participants from all the Nordic countries was invited by NORDINFO to
discuss ideas for Nordic initiatives within the area of Information
Literacy. The group have named themselves the NORDINFOLIT Group. The
outcome of this brainstorming session was very promising. Several
projects were discussed and the NORDINFOLIT Group decided to seek funds
from NORDINFO to organise a Nordic Summer School in 2002 on Information
Literacy hosted by the Royal School of Library and Information Science
in Copenhagen. For further information on the NORDINFOLIT Group, please
