Abstract

Our keynote will examine the progress of work at the intersections of information literacy and scholarly communications, since the publication of “Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy: Creating Strategic Collaborations for a Changing Academic Environment,” in 2013. We will discuss the persistent drivers that make the Intersections relevant and essential, including the ACRL Framework released in 2015 and the general higher education landscape, which continues to shift due to changing demographics and economic uncertainty. By focusing on our collaborative and collective action, we will identify how we can continue the momentum behind the Intersections.
