Information literacy: the work of librarians past and present | Reading, Writing, Research

Information literacy: the work of librarians past and present | Reading, Writing, Research | Teaching through Libraries | Scoop.it
More information is available than most people can imagine. That's nothing new. Librarians have always shown people how to find it, evaluate it, and use it. Finding particular information and knowing how to evaluate its reliability is as difficult as ever.

Information Literacy 2.0 | Adapting to changes in the information environment

Information Literacy 2.0 | Adapting to changes in the information environment | Teaching through Libraries | Scoop.it

"Critical inquiry skills are among the most important in a world in which the half-life of information is rapidly shrinking. These days, what you know is almost less important than what you can find out."  The ability to evaluate and filter the information is now being suggested as the significant skill that we all need to be improving.

Teacher librarians as ‘information dietitians’

Teacher librarians as ‘information dietitians’ | Teaching through Libraries | Scoop.it

This book is due for publication this month. The book blurb states: “Healthy information consumption habits are about more than productivity and efficiency. They’re about your personal health, and the health of society. Just as junk food can lead to obesity, junk information can lead to new forms of ignorance. The Information Diet provides a framework for consuming information in a healthy way, by showing you what to look for, what to avoid, and how to be selective."
