Winnipeg to Host ACRL Institute for Information Literacy

The ACRL Institute for Information Literacy Executive Committee made its final decision approving the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada as the official location of the Immersion ’07 program, which will be held Sunday, August 5 - Friday, August 10, 2007. The University of Manitoba, the University of Winnipeg and Brandon University will jointly sponsor the program. Offering the Immersion program in Canada fits the ACRL strategic plan by making Immersion accessible to a broader audience, as this will be the first time the program will be offered outside the United States.  More information on the program and instructions on how to apply are available on the ACRL website at
