Hope you’re all well and happy new year!
I’ve been awarded a Kress fellowship so I’ll be attending the ARLIS/NA conference in February, it’ll be great to meet some of you in person for the first time!
My proposal was based around wanting to collaborate with one or more librarians connected to ARLIS/NA on some sort of project linked to research behaviours/threshold concepts for fashion students (which may just be the same as art and design students generally, which is also fine in that case). Ultimately I’d like to get some information literacy threshold concepts devised that could be used to help plan information literacy sessions for fashion students.
So, is this something one or more of you would be interested in talking to me about whilst attending the conference? I’d like to talk about what is specific to fashion (or if less specific- art and design) students when it comes to their research and which concepts we feel they specifically struggle with in relation to information literacy. I think this could be a really interesting international collaboration, and wouldn’t be too onerous, but could result in an interesting research output.
Do let me know if you’re interested and we can arrange an informal discussion.
Many thanks and see some of you soon!
