Infolit - through the Case of the Antique Chairs - video #wlic2013

Another catchup post from the IFLA Satellite meeting on Information Literacy and reference services . There was a poster session, and one of the posters described how the National Library of Singapore created a video (professionally produced and acted) to introduce information literacy to a wider audience. They base it around a Singaporean version of Sherlock Holmes and call it the Case of the Antique Chairs. Using their infolit formula (SURE: Source, Understand, Research, Evaluate) the sleuth is able to evaluate a con-artist's website. Here is the video on Youtube and their information literacy site is here: (on which you will see they also do interesting work with schools)
