complexity of IL and the learning environment whereas CKIII will among
others address issues concerning the educational role of the librarian
within the learning environment.
Topics might include; Information Literacy and the role of the librarian as
a teacher, effective learning, learning theories and styles, assessment of
IL Programmes, IL and distance learning. The aim is to focus on the
situation in Europe, USA, Canada and the UK;how the situation is today what
has been gained over the past years, how far have we gone?

library sectors as well as researchers, information officers, IT strategists
and education and library planners.

A web-page will be set up for the conference, and an announcement sent out
as soon as it is ready. Information from previous conferences, CKI and CKII,
