Global perspectives on Information Literacy

ACRL (Association of College and Research Libraries) Student Learning and Information Literacy Committee commissioned a report with perspectives from some non-USA countries on information literacy in those countries/regions: "We asked fifteen authors to reflect on research trends, models of information literacy,
theory and practice, the role of librarians, and envisioning the future of information literacy" (p. 145). There are contributions from authors based in Canada, Israel, New Zealand, México, the UK, Uganda, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Croatia and Norway; and also a summary, foreward and reflection. Some of the authors also presented at the ACRL conference last week.
