The Information Literacy Network of Finnish University Libraries

Ruth Stubbings and I are in Finland at the invitation of the Finnish IL network to talk about how we went about revising the SCONUL IL model. The Finns have their own model, called a recommendation which they want to revise. At present it is focused on undergraduates and they'd like to extend it to include researchers. From discussions we've had, it seems that facilitating research is just starting to become a big agenda item here ( so I've recommended they all buy my book on Developing library services for research!) There are around 120 librarians at the 2 day conference, which is held every year, and the plan is to get together in groups representing the different kinds of academic library and actually start to redesign their model.
