Workplace Information Literacy: A Crucial Component of Lifelong Learning
Information literacy is a well-established topic in librarianship. However, far too often we treat it as if it exists only in an academic setting. Information literacy is a fluid concept that changes based on the information environment in which a person finds herself. This presentation will discuss the contextual nature of information literacy with a focus on workplace and educational settings. This will also incorporate preliminary results from a research study in which Penn State alumni were interviewed regarding their experience with information literacy in their undergraduate career and their day-to-day work.
