Keynotes


Paul G. Zurkowski is the originator of the term "information literacy". He first used this term in 1974 in a proposal to the US National Commission on Libraries and Information Science. At the time he coined the term he was president of the Information Industry Association. His vision for information literacy skill development is not library centric, but advocates for a universal approach in its delivery across all trades, occupations and professions. Zurkowski views information literacy skills as a critical stepping stone in the creation of wealth, a key element for national economic development.

Dr Christine Bruce is Professor in theInformationSystemsSchool, Science and Engineering Faculty, QUT,Australia.  She has an extensive research and publication profile in information literacy and higher education teaching and learning. Dr. Bruce has a special focus on information literacy and learning. She regularly facilitates workshops and delivers speeches on information literacy.
