New Information Literacy (IL) book from Unesco

This collection of Information Literacy (IL) Resources from around the world 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.
In order to provide an inclusive and multilingual approach, this publication brings together contributions from IL experts from all over the world. By listing resources in several widely spoken languages, it 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. In addition, it is also expected that Library and Information Science faculty at higher education institutions, independent practicing IL consultants, and private sector training companies will collaborate closely to design, organize workshops to train native language IL trainers.
