10. Purpose connect up practitioners in a range of sectors who are all working towards the common goal of creating an information literate Scotland.
16. I'll confess to being a serial lurker on this forum (more reactive than proactive) and tend not to contribute (new year's resolution is to contribute more!) but I wouldn't be without my regular CoP e-mails. It has been excellent in enabling me to discover who else (both organisations and individuals) that are thinking about Information Literacy and discovering what they are doing practically to address the many issues faced. I am an avid reader of the CoP, but feel a tad guilty about my lack of contribution. So, I am resolved to frequently update my blog and to contribute more to the range of interesting conversations happening in the CoP.
17. I was totally unfamiliar with the concept but have found it easy to use - and very useful. I've also recently had the opportunity to compare it to alternative methods of communication, and I think it stands up well. On the down side - the fact that it is a closed space means that you often need to post outside the space as well. Double the work. On the plus side - it's a great space for sharing information and ideas with a wide range of people from different organisations. It's also great that it is provided and supported by the Scottish Government.
