Description:ILI-L Discussion List
Welcome to ILI-L, the Information Literacy Instruction Discussion List!
LIST HISTORY AND DESCRIPTION: ILI-L was created in May 2002 as a new iteration
of the online community that Martin Raish created with the BI-L discussion list in
1990. ILI-L is hosted on the American Library Association server, sponsored by the
Instruction Section of the Association of College and Research Libraries, and
moderated by the ILI-L List Administrator. With ILI-L, the Instruction Section
hopes to sustain the thriving exchange on instruction and information literacy
that made BI-L such an important venue for communication among librarians from
a variety of settings and backgrounds.
