Questions related to Information Literacy Teaching
Dear peers, comments and ideas welcome. If you don't mind, hope you can also share your projects / papers on digital literacy or skills. We're looking to study this in 2021. Thanking all of you in advance :-)
If one has a (maybe transient) link to an open access version of a paper, how can we post it? Of course one can upload the unedited manuscript, but we all know that the edited one is much nicer to read...
We published one apper and I got a link, but dont know where to post it:
I can't post it as supplement (file needed), nor anywhere on the article page and there is no format which can be used to created a new contribution...
I found a similar question but without a usable idea (besides building a document including the link)
Dear RG community,
I'm currently working on a literature review and I'm looking for information literacy conceptual frameworks and standards. I'm looking for contribution proposed in the scientific literature in information science (or related fields) or proposed by educational institutions or information professionals institutions (e.g SCONUL, ACRL...). I'm interested in any contributions that defines/describes the nature/scope/levels of competences/skills/knowledge/etc...that should be mastered by individuals to be "information literate". I'm also interested in any contribution from other fields (e.g media literacy, digital literacy...) if they are related in some ways with questions of human-information interaction. I'd like to discover contributions from any country if an english/french version is available.
Thanks in advance for your help,
Acting as a librarian in a university library, one of the key issues is the acquisition by the users of informational competencies. We have discussed a lot the variety of concepts on the topic of literacy sometimes called, sometimes competence, or ability. We consider very important to reflect on the conceptual determinations, but we left some previous questions: how is the training of the librarian for such competence? There have been a didactic training to fulfill this educational facet of the librarian role? As the institution where I work, we are still in the initial process, I have need to know about the practices that have been developed in the libraries and how librarians have been related to continuing education.
What kinds of competences a subject librarian should have?
What professional competences should librarians have in order to provide more professional, more comprehensive and efficient services for students and teachers in their learning, teaching and research? What skills and techniques should librarians master in order to keep pace with the rapid development of information technology, and to facilitate libraries’ smooth transition from the traditional self-access resources (of both paperbacks and e-resources) and study-space provider to knowledge service?
Maybe i ask the similar question with Thoriq Tri Prabowo , but we are really different
- could you share your opinions with me?
- and could you introduce some other standards?
thank you very much
A means skill, or ability
B subject librarian maybe has other names, such as, business librarian, law librarian, Research Support Librarian, Teacher Librarian or others
C could you introduce some other standards? exclude

Sparrow et al (Science, 2011, v333, p776) suggest that Google has become a primary form of transactive memory. But I would argue that these information memory systems have always underpinned information literacy teaching and Google is just the latest popular manifestation of externalized transactive memory in action.
Following the recommendations made by UNESCO as steps before adapting the MIL curriculum for teachers, I will conduct a research to determine the level of implementation of the Media and Information Literacy in a Master of Teaching on Secondary and High School (A levels) in Spain. It is to identify the competence on MIL acquired by students through the Masters and also teachers attitudes, needs and wishes, as well as to analyze the contextual conditions. It would therefore be useful to know the different experiences of ‘MIL curriculum for teachers’ adaptation that have been carried out at other universities. Any information you can give me will be very welcome.
There is a growing view among information specialists that information literacy training should be integrated into subject curricula rather than taught through generic courses. Are there any counter perspectives?
Critically thinking nurses provide safe, proficient, culturally sensitive care. Information Literacy/Competency is a requirement to the development of critical thinking skills. Nurses need to be information literate, in-order to be prepared to critically think in the fast paced clinical setting, for the provision of exceptional care.
I'm interested in the way the children aged 0-3 learn to "read", or rather get in the contact with the book from the birth. Does anyone know the projects in your countries (besides Bookstart and all its worldwide branches) using emergency literacy?
