IFLA papers online relevant to information literacy

The World Library and Information Conference (or IFLA conference) takes place 10-15 August, and most of the papers are already online. These are full text papers, some of them available in more than one language. I will spread the links over a few posts. I have picked out ones particularly relevant to information literacy and information behaviour.
- Huy Nghiem (College of Social Sciences and Humanities, Vietnam National University, Hanoi, Vietnam) Delivering information literacy programmes in the context of network society and cross-cultural perspectives
- Christopher Coward (University of Washington Information School) and Karen Fisher Measuring Indirect Access: Indicators of the Impacts of Lay Information Mediary Behavior
- Sheila Corrall (University of Sheffield) Developing inclusive models of reference and instruction to create information literate communities
- Vicki McDonald (Library Services, Queensland University of Technology, Queensland, Australia) Get the edge, get ahead: Queensland University of Technology Library's approach to learning support
- Kaijsa Calkins and Cassandra Kvenild (University of Wyoming, Laramie, WY, USA) Embedding in the 21st Century Academy: crossing curriculum and geography
- Raul Aguilera et al (Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Madrid, Spain) Training undergraduate students to search and use statistical information: a cooperation between professors and librarians
- Harrison Dekker (UC Berkeley Libraries, Berkeley, California, USA) Using web-based software to promote data literacy in a large enrollment undergraduate course
