Information Literacy And The Workforce, Sharon A. Weiner Jan 2010

Information Literacy And The Workforce, Sharon A. Weiner

Libraries Faculty and Staff Presentations

This presentation is a review of reports on information literacy and the workforce. There is a substantial body of literature on information literacy in K-16 educational settings, but there is much less literature on implications for the workplace and job-related lifelong learning. The topical categories of the reports are: the importance of information literacy for the workforce; how information literacy differs in work and educational settings; and barriers to information literacy in the workplace. The presentation concludes with recommendations for practice and for further research.
