InfoFest is a free one-day conference (with free lunch) for information professionals taking place at the University of Kent's Canterbury (UK) campus on 4 May 2017. "The day, organised by CILIP in Kent and the University of Kent, will include a range of talks on challenges and opportunities for information professionals in the digital age, with a particular focus on digital literacy and combatting fake news. You'll have the chance to learn: what it was like to be in charge of Sweden's national Twitter account when Donald Trump mentioned a non-existent security incident in Sweden; how information literacy in schools affects students' transition to university; how to manage your digital footprint and online identity; why accessibility tools are good for everyone.... InfoFest is open to staff in all sectors, at all levels." Additionally, one of the morning breakouts is Information literacy framework in higher education from Maria Bell (London School of Economics). It looks an interesting day. Register at
