Welcome to the 2015 Winter Institute on Statistical Literacy for Librarians (WISLL)!
We are pleased to announce that the 2015 Institute will be held from February 18 to 20, 2015, at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada.
Librarians are facing more statistical information than ever before because of the dissemination of statistics over the Internet. Concomitant with this are greater demands for statistics from user communities. Greater availability of statistics online, however, has not made this information necessarily easier to find or to retrieve. The Institute provides training in the strategies and tools for finding statistics and the provision of formats directly useful to users. The Institute is valuable and relevant to professionals working in academic, public, and special libraries.
NB: We request that participants from previous workshops do not re-register in 2015, due to limited enrollment. We appreciate your cooperation.
