Information Literacy in the Workplace

The new issue of Education Libraries, the open-access journal published by the Education Division of the (US) Special Libraries Association, focuses on workplace information literacy. This is Volume 34, Number 2; Winter 2011. Key articles are:
Information Literacy and the Workforce: A Review; by Sharon Weiner
21st Century Workforce Initiatives: A New Wave of Educational Reform Movements; by Laura L. Leavitt
From the Classroom to the Boardroom: The Impact of Information Literacy Instruction on Workplace Research Skills; by Tiffini Travis
There is also an annotated bibliography, which I'm happy to say mentions this blog, though it says it started in 2008 (rather than 2005)
The journal home page is at http://units.sla.org/division/ded/education_libraries.html and the pdf of the issue is at http://units.sla.org/division/ded/educationlibraries/34-2.pdf
