Information Literacy in the Workplace
Kirton, Jennifer; Barham, Lyn
Australian Library Journal, v54 n4 p365-376 Nov 2005
Information literacy has been a subject of interest for academic librarians for nearly thirty years, however special librarians have written comparatively little on the topic of information literacy in the workplace. It is an important issue as it provides an opportunity for special librarians to enhance their role in their organisation. This paper discusses the need for training in information literacy in the workplace and highlights the latest research and studies being undertaken in the field.
