Information Literacy for "outliers"

A very interesting initiative based at the University of Washington Information School is reported in:

Birdsong, Lark. (2009) "Information Literacy Training for All: The Outliers." Searcher, 17 (8).

"The Initiative has grown from the Research Rocks youth group to include women without homes, entrepreneurs/business owners, adults older than 50, and individuals looking for employment. "
