Carribean IL

Three items: two recent articles -

Hosein, S. (2006) "Teaching Information Literacy at the University of the West Indies in Trinidad." Information development, 22 (2), 110-115.

Durrant, F. (2006) "The World Wide Web Enhancing E-government in the Caribbean: an assessment of government portals or gateway websites." IFLA Journal, 32 (3), 240-250. Whole issue at

Thirdly, a UNESCO initiative that I found out about from an entry on Michael Lorenzen's blog. The progamme "targets primary school students and community residents within the vicinity of the [Tunapuna Public] Library and aims to empower the local community through access to information and knowledge, while improving Information Literacy skills."
