Cambridge Information Literacy Network

Cambridge Information Literacy Network

The Cambridge Information Literacy Network (CILN) was established at the University of Cambridge in February 2018. It intends to promote and advocate for the new Information Literacy framework, which sets out the expectations for information literacy practice at the University of Cambridge.

Information Literacy is the ability to think critically and make balanced judgments about any information we find and use. It empowers us as citizens to develop informed views and to engage fully with society.

CILIP, 2018

This website provides information on CILN and we regularly update our blog and Twitter feed with news on current projects. CamGuides for Master’s students was launched in summer 2018 and for Undergraduates in summer 2019.

Projects for 2019/20 include a year long ‘Teaching and Learning for Librarians’ course, this commenced in Michaelmas 2019. In association with Librarians in Training we have developed a ‘Framework Five‘ online course to be launched in February 2020. The popular CILN Forum will take place on 25th June 2020.
