WILU 2017 will be hosted by the University of Alberta in Edmonton on May 23-25, 2017.

The Workshop for Instruction in Library Use (WILU) is Canada’s only conference devoted to library instruction, information literacy, and information fluency. Sessions explore both research-based and applied subject matter, and are attended by librarians from Canada, the United States, and beyond with a variety of teaching and learning interests. It is notable that WILU is not affiliated with any association or organizing body – instead, since its inception in 1972, it has been sustained and passed on from year to year through the collaborative efforts of hosting institutions.

WILU is a multi-stream conference, with sessions taking place concurrently on a variety of information literacy themes. In addition to a varied and meaningful program, WILU 2016 will also offer pre-conference workshops, dynamic keynote speakers, opportunities for sight-seeing and fine dining in Vancouver, British Columbia.
