Very interesting.
I came across a reference to the national(I assume this means British?) NHS proposing a project to develop an information literacy modular curriculum that was to have been a national scheme for the healthcare sector. Do you have any idea whether this ever went ahead? Or has the issue devolved to regional authorities?
