79^th IFLA General Conference and Council: /Future Libraries: Infinite Possibilities/

*Singapore, August 17-23, 2013*



Programme:**School Libraries and Information for Civic Literacies


The IFLA *School Library *and *Information Literacy Sections* are seeking proposals for a joint programme to be held at the IFLA Conference in Singapore in August 2013.

Information literacy covers a broad spectrum of literacies required for success in the 21^st century. Of the multiple literacies encountered, there is the essential challenge of developing literate citizens who are equipped to participate and contribute to the local and broader community. The program will present papers that address this challenge through school libraries and collaborators with school libraries, such as public libraries, university libraries, community entities, government agencies etc.

Papers should address one or both of the two main concepts of civic literacy:

1. Civic Literacy <https://webmail.unt.edu/OWA/redir.aspx?C=G81HvrocSkai4dRquG21md4Itqvdj88IQ5MBHDjs4QObbg1gO3LIdIcMfVqYCcKM7fjaUdAux_s.&URL=http%3a%2f%2fwww.p21.org%2foverview%2fskills-framework%2f258-civic-literacy>

* Participating effectively in civic life through knowing how to stay informed and understanding governmental processes

* Exercising the rights and obligations of citizenship at local, state, national and global levels
