Call for papers for joint session Health and Biosciences Libraries with Information Literacy - WLIC 2014 Lyon

By Brian Galvin

The concept of health literacy overlaps the public health and education functions of the modern state.  An educated population, literate in the various forms in which knowledge is transmitted, should be able to understand, interpret and absorb information of relevance to their physical and mental well-being.  This capacity is essential to support a population which has the physiological and intellectual capacity to enjoy society’s physical and knowledge resources and participate fully in its affairs. 

Authors will have the opportunity to have their work published in a book comprising submissions for this session and other selected papers.

This book will be published in 2015 as part of the IFLA Publications Series (De Gruyter Saur).

Submissions should be sent by email to: bgalvin@hrb.ie before Friday March 21st 2014 Brian Galvin. Chair, IFLA Health and Biosciences Libraries Section.
