International Information Literacy Resources Directory

There is a project to collect information about information literacy initiatives around the world. The website is at
The Information Literacy Section of the International Federation of Library Association and Institutions (IFLA) is carrying forward the project, on behalf of UNESCO, and the project is coordinated by the Section Chair, Jesús Lau. You can submit details of training courses, publications, websites, discussion lists, research etc. online once you have registered (which you can do instantly). There are just a few resources listed at the moment (as it is a new project), but in due course it should become very useful.
As you will see, I am the coordinator for the "Anglophone European Countries" ;-))
