The STS IL chat is sponsored by the Science & Technology Section's (STS) Information Literacy (IL) committee. STS is a section of the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL), a division of the American Library Association (ALA).

  • STS IL chats are intended to be a place where science librarians can gather to discuss topics related to instruction and information literacy. They are open to all, free-of-charge. 
  • Chats are held mid-month, approximately 5-10 times each year. They are announced on the STS-listserv approximately 1 to 2 weeks ahead of time.
  • Chats typically take place on Zoom platform and are recorded and archived. Links to the recordings have been sent out on the STS-listserv, but are also available on this guide.

STEM Information literacy thrives when librarians connect to discuss and spark new ideas! The ACRL Science and Technology Section - Information Literacy Committee invites you to share your exciting innovations and partnerships as a monthly chat discussion leader. Over the course of an hour, discussion leaders present content (30-40 min) and then discuss their topic with attendees. Chats are held via Zoom.

Please use this Chat Proposal form to express your interest, describe your topic (3-5 sentences), and view available dates. Topics should fall within the theme "Innovations and partnerships in STEM information literacy."

A member of the ACRL STS Information Literacy Committee will contact you to either schedule your chat or to let you know if we are unable to fit your chat idea into the calendar this year. Please contact Jenn Sams at jsams [at] mtu.edu with any questions. Thank you for your interest!
