MARTZOUKOU, K. 2016. Lost in information? Syrian new Scots' information literacy way-finding practices. Presented at the 10th biannual meeting of the Scottish Information Literacy Community of Practice: the right information: information skills for the 21st century, 6 December 2016, Edinburgh, UK.
As of May 2016, Scotland has welcomed 1,602 Syrian refugees as part of the wider UK Syrian Vulnerable Persons Relocation (VPR) Scheme, aiming to resettle 20,000 Syrians (over a period of five years drawn from established refugee camps). This presentation reflects on the current activity, what progress has been made in year 2 and what are the next steps needed in year 3 of the VPR Scheme to help these New Scots integrate fully with their new communities.
