CILIP Information Literacy and Your Work Survey

The UK's Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals has an online survey asking library and information professional to answer a few questions about the place of information literacy in their work. The survey targets people working outside the education sector.

The questions (apart from demographic questions) are: Do you have a good understanding of information literacy? Is information literacy a key part of your current role? If not should it be? My employer recognises the importance of information literacy to their organisation (disagree-agree); My employer recognises my role in supporting information literacy (disagree-agree) If you work alongside other professionals, are you encouraged to help them develop and improve their information literacy skills? (by other professionals we mean, for example, lawyers, doctors, clinicians etc.) How do you think CILIP should be supporting the Information Literacy agenda?

By implication this seems to be aimed at UK librarians. I will add more info when I discover it (I couldn't find anything on the CILIP website! I came across the link via here)
The survey closes on 11 February and is at
