Last week I had a visitor from Chalmers University Library in Gothenberg staying for the week and based in CLT. Mauritza Jadefrid was awarded a scholarship from the Swedish Institute for Information Specialists to spend a week finding out about e-learning and information literacy at LSE, and so along with my colleague Maria Bell in the Library, we devised a week of activities for Mauritza. She observed a number of the classes we were teaching, attended various meetings, including a meeting to review our information literacy course in Moodle and we set up meetings with various colleagues at LSE. We also arranged for Mauritza to visit Imperial College, and we had some time for sightseeing and evenings out in various pubs of London!
I hope Mauritza enjoyed herself as much as we both did and I am looking forward to meeting up with her again at LILAC next month. We also benefited from hearing about the use of LibGuides at Chalmers, the compulsory information literacy courses for undergraduate students and the use of Summon for research discovery.
