The Media and Information Literacy Community of Practice 

CILIPS help to Chair and are represented at the Media and Information Literacy Community of Practice, working together to highlight the importance of information literacy skills and the role that library and information staff can play in delivering them.

Media and Information literacy – understanding how to access and use information and undertand various forms of media- are the cornerstone of learning and essential in this digital age. They support learning and decision making in all areas of human activity: education from early years through school to higher education, the workplace, adult and lifelong learning and skills development. It supports people to make informed choices about health care, to develop new skills both professionally and personally, and it gives citizens the information they need to make informed decisions about the future of their country.

The Community of Practice is open to everyone both within and outside the information profession, primarily based in Scotland but also beyond. It is for anyone who is interested in information literacy and associated skills and competencies.
