From Prof. Woody F. Horton: Colleagues, it is with a great deal of both gratitude and pride that I call your attention to our ePub announced today by UNESCO entitled "Overview of Information Literacy Resources Worldwide." Many of you either contributed one of the 42 language lists that are contained in this publication,or advised me on the content and format. The publication is available both in ePub format and as a pdf file. I will be back in touch with you to solicit your ideas for how to use this tool to help ordinary citizens worldwide, who are not fluent in English, and would prefer to search for information literacy resources in their own native languages. If you are a member of this Google Discussion group but do not see your native language in the database
in the ePub, please communicate with me because we intend that as many
languages as feasible be added to the database going forward, and also put in place a tool so that the "starting entries" can be kept up-to-date, perhaps using a wiki. We would welcome volunteers to prepare lists of IL resources in languages which are still missing from the database.
Here in brief is the UNESCO announcement:
"WEEKLY NEWSLETTER SERVICE
E-pub brings together worldwide Information Literacy resources
available in 42 languages
15.02.2013 - A collection of Information Literacy (IL) Resources from
around the world is now available on UNESCO’s website in e-Pub and PDF
formats. The publication titled “Overview of Information Literacy
Resource Worldwide” is divided into 42 language lists and includes
selected resources – from websites, books, journals and other kinds of
publications – that were provided by contributors from different
countries and institutions and compiled by Dr Forest Woody Horton Jr."

and content appears if you click on the 3rd link below, and the pdf
