The planners of the IU Libraries Information Literacy Colloquium regret to announce the cancellation of this year's event on August 5 at IU Southeast in New Albany, Indiana. While we believe and maintain that the subject matter--critical pedagogy and library instruction--is important, valid, and a necessary conversation in our field, we were not able to design a financially and logistically feasible program to justify holding the event.
When we organized the first Colloquium in 2012, the co-planners dreamed of an exciting, innovative, and energizing event that would have a significant impact on the professional development of academic instruction librarians in the Midwest region and beyond. We believe and have evidence that we have accomplished this goal. While we are sad and disappointed to not hold the event this year, we will reassess next year and hope to bring the Colloquium back to all of you who have been loyal supporters.
Thank you for your interest in and support of the Colloquium.
