Page history last edited by Sheila Webber 8 years, 1 month ago

Discussions have been held regularly on Infolit iSchool under the aegis of the Centre for Information Literacy Research, and in June 2008 it hosted a Second Life track of the Learning Through Enquiry Alliance conference. The main organiser is Sheila Yoshikawa (Sheila Webber in Real Life). In 2009 (SL names) Pancha Enzyme, Lulu Guinness, Ishbel Hartmann and Maggie Kohime assisted as an informal organising committee.
