Dr David Brazier will present a poster entitled ‘Information literacy workshops: trials and tribulations of public engagement within a pandemic’, co-authored with CSI colleagues Rachel Salzano and Dr Bruce Ryan. David will report on the team’s experience of transforming a project built around the delivery of in-person workshops on information literacy and online search best practice in a public library setting so that it could still be completed successfully during the first period of pandemic lockdown in 2020.
