Global Perspectives on Information Literacy: Fostering a Dialogue for International Understanding

Across the world, academic librarians work toward developing students’ abilities to effectively find, evaluate, use, and create information. The approach to teaching these lifelong, cumulative skills can be designed in myriad ways throughout our global environment. This work seeks to share individual international perspectives that, through a unique voice, provide clarity toward how information literacy is viewed, taught, conceptualized, and, in general, approached internationally. The individual voices of our authors provide perspective on the unique challenges and opportunities presented in each region.
