ALISE 2016 has ended
The ALISE 2016 Conference theme of “Radical Change: Inclusion and Innovation” celebrates the far reaching impact of Eliza T. Dresang’s work. The conference welcomes contributions that explore inclusive practices and innovative strategies in teaching and research, with special interest for Cultural Diversity, Digital Societies, Intellectual Freedom, Social Justice and International Resources.

Our logo for the conference is the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly. This is a great symbol of radical change and transformation. Although the caterpillar and the butterfly exist in the same environment, each has its own perception and understanding of the world. As the caterpillar prepares for transformation, it must build the chrysalis, which acts as protection and change agent. When the radical change is completed, the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis into a new world, one of amazing potential and opportunity. The radical transformation and change allows the caterpillar to move beyond its small environment as a beautiful butterfly excited and ready to see and learn about its brave new world.

The technological and social context has increased the demand for skills and knowledge in the areas of information privacy, security and ownership, which are key aspects of digital literacy. These, however, are difficult to teach. This paper addresses this problem through a synthesis of current knowledge by (1) documenting the demand for expertise in these three areas of digital literacy; (2) assessing the ways in which LIS curricula works to develop adequate and sustainable skills in these three areas of digital literacy; (3) establishing a comprehensive curriculum that will provide optimal training in these areas for LIS professionals.
