Training the Trainers in Information Literacy" UNESCO Final Report

I missed alerting people to the publication of the final report to UNESCO on the Training The Trainers in Information Literacy workshops project, which was prepared by Albert K. Boekhorst and Forest Woody Horton and published in February. It includes the background documents (e.g. proposal and guidelines for organisers) and information on the workshops, listing the countries in which they were held, the countries represented at the seminars, and the job sectors of participants. It has recommendations for further action to UNESCO. These include establishing an "Information Literacy and Lifelong Learning Clearinghouse (CoIL-LL) so that the experiences, ideas, best practices, new theories and experimental pilot projects that have already emerged, and will certainly continue to emerge, can be captured in a disciplined way, organized, indexed, and then shared internationally."
