This was presented at the conference *L'education à la culture informationnelle* [Education for/in information culture], held in l’Université Charles de Gaulle Lille3, Lille, France on 16 October 2008. The presenters were Sheila Webber and Bill Johnston, and the paper was also co-authored with Stuart Boon. The presentation was made in English as "Developing pedagogical conditions for information literacy: the impact of disciplinary contexts on information literacy education". The PowerPoint has been translated into French as "Développer des conditions pédagogiques pour la culture informationnelle : l’impact des contextes disciplinaires sur l’éducation à l’information". In it we describe our research into UK Civil Engineering academics' conceptions of information literacy and teaching information literacy, and we discuss the implications for learning.
