Medien- und Informationskompetenz

Bibliothek & Information Deutschland produced (in February 2011) a (German-language) brochure of recommendations, to contribute to the thinking of a German parliamentary Committee of Enquiry. The title is: Medien- und Informationskompetenz – immer mit Bibliotheken und Informationseinrichtungen! Empfehlungen von Bibliothek & Information Deutschland (BID) für die Enquete-Kommission "Internet und digitale Gesellschaft" des Deutschen Bundestages. [Media and Information Literacy: from library and information services! Recommendations from Bibliothek & Information Deutschland to the parliamentary Committee of Inquiry into the Internet and digital society]. Published by: Bibliothek & Information Deutschland (BID) Bundesvereinigung Deutscher Bibliotheks- und Informationsverbände e.V.
The document advocates the value and key role of libraries, pointing out the extent to which libraries are already supporting information literacy, digital literacy and e-learning. It makes recommendations at the national, federal and regional level, for formal and adult education, and it gives examples from practice.
If you can speak German you may also be interested in the Commission's website. For example, there is a project group on media literacy (the consultation phase of the group has finished).
