Information Literacy in context: links etc.

Here are some links to items on the initial reading list, and as mentioned in the Information Literacy presentation, plus a few more. If you are not sure where to start: look at the first video (below) which is 17 minutes long and Bonnie Cheuk's paper (the first article linked below) is a nice example of blending practice and theory of information literacy in a workplace.

Expert frameworks and models of Information Literacy

The links to the SCONUL 7 Pillars model are here: http://inf6350-2013.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/information-literacy-and-sconul-7.html

Continuing and Professional Education and the University Libraries at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst have teamed up to produce this video which outlines the concepts and practices of the Information Literacy Standards as defined by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL).

This is a link to the actual standards http://www.ala.org/acrl/standards/informationliteracycompetency: at the moment a task force is revising the standards, and a consultation on this is in progress.

Please add any links below or (even better!) feature them in posts on your team blog.
