E-pub brings together worldwide Information Literacy resources available in 42 languages


A collection of Information Literacy (IL) Resources from around the world is now available on UNESCO’s website in e-Pub and PDF formats. The publication titled “Overview of Information Literacy Resource Worldwide” is divided into 42 language lists and includes selected resources – from websites, books, journals and other kinds of publications – that were provided by contributors from different countries and institutions and compiled by Dr Forest Woody Horton Jr.

During the last decades, a need for educational resources on Information Literacy was identified by the professional community, encouraging both UNESCO and the author to produce such a publication. Although the IL concept has been studied and promoted in many countries, resources and information on the concept and its practices were spread in different types of sources, formats and languages. Therefore, in order to provide an inclusive and multilingual approach, this e-Pub brings together contributions from IL experts from all over the world. By listing resources in several widely spoken languages, the e-Pub enables professionals, researchers and individuals from various backgrounds and nationalities to access relevant information in their native languages.
The author’s objective is that school teachers and school librarians, at the appropriate primary and secondary grade levels, team together to prepare lesson plans and tutorials to introduce information literacy training into the classroom, by using the extensive native language resources.(...)
