We posted the announcement of registration for this conference on Data Information Literacy and the conference reached its registration cap very quickly; I know some of you were disappointed that you would not be able to attend in person. The conference organizers recently announced that they will be live streaming the sessions – see below – so you will have another mode for access. The conference will be hosted at Purdue University.

From the conference organizers:
We are pleased to announce that much of the Data Information Literacy (DIL) symposium hosted by the Purdue University Libraries on Sept 23rd and 24th will be streamed live on the internet.
We’re still finalizing the URL information, but in the means time you can track updates via our Twitter (@datainfolit) and Facebook pages (www.facebook.com/datainfolit).
The DIL symposium will explore roles for practicing librarians in teaching competencies in data management and curation to graduate students. With support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, librarians from Purdue University, Cornell University, the University of Minnesota and the University of Oregon have investigated this topic through developing and implementing “data information literacy” (DIL) instruction programs for graduate students in a range of science and engineering disciplines.
