Information Literacy and Lifelong Learning: The Time is Now!

In the 17 years since the release of the ALA Presidential Committee on Information Literacy Final Report, information literacy has moved from being a barely-heard-of term to an international movement. Now it appears that the planets are in alignment for another major leap forward. This address will explore the current "map" of information literacy and its role in the human right of lifelong learning. It will also explore how librarians can best position themselves and their programs to advance the reach of information literacy on their campuses and in their communities.
