Information Literacy at UCLA (and Everywhere!)
LISNews points to this article about Gary Strong:
New UCLA university librarian Gary Strong looks to further modernize the campus libraries with the Information Literacy Initiative, one-credit classes in research aid, and higher library privacy.
...According to a document released by the university library, information literacy is the ability to identify information needs, locate information efficiently, evaluate information, and to use information effectively and ethically.
I like that definition a lot. Part of SJCPL's mission is to promote info literacy as well. I like the addition of the privacy and ethics bits in the UCLA plans.....
