  1. INFORMATION LITERACY INDICATORS:A Must for Countries IFLA Satellite Conference Library Statistics for the 21st. Century World UIS-IFLA-ISO Montreal, Canada, August 18-19, 2008 Jesús Lau, PhD / Ralph Catts jlau@uv.mx www.jesuslau.com Director, USBI VER Library, and Coordinator, UV Virtual Library Universidad Veracruzana www.uv.mx/bvirtual / www.uv.mx/usbi_ver Boca del Río, Veracruz, MÉXICO

  2. Defining Information Literacy • Recognise their information needs • Locate and evaluate the quality of information • Store and retrieve information • Make effective and ethical use of information, and • Apply information to create and communicate knowledge

  3. 1 SOCIETY 2 WORK 4 EDUCATION 3 WELL-BEING IL Contexts

  4. Distinguishing ILfrom Information Transfer Transformation Transmission Availability of Information Reception Narrower ICT Path

  5. Comparison of Industrial and Knowledge Economies

  6. 1. Generation • Authors • Inventors • Researcher 4. Use/Demand 2. Packing • Researchers • Academics • Students • Companies • Editor • Databases / electronic media companies • Information aggregators 3. Distribution • Bookstores • Libraries • Information services Information / Knowledge Chain

  7. Information Literacy Standards

  8. Information Literacy Continuum (IFLA 2006) Level 0 - Kinder Garden EDUCATION SKILLS Defi nition and articulation of information need Level 1 - Elementary LEVELS Location and access of information Level 2 - Junior High Basic Assessment of information Level 3 - High School Medium Organization of information Level 4 - Post-secondary High Use of information Level 5 - Undergraduate Advanced Communication and ethical use of information Level 6 - Research

  9. Information Literacy and Adult Competencies

  13. Information Literacy and Equality • Language role impact • Cultural constraints • Political constraints • Economic constraints • IL around the world

  14. Sources of InformationLiteracy Indicators • Relevance of LAMP • Potential of PISA items • Potential of DHS surveys

  15. Criteria for IL for TeachersConcerns with benchmarkingDeciding Levels of IL Competence Challenges

  16. Pertinent Timely Accurate Frequency Cost Valid Reliable Consistency ‘Economy’ ‘Independence’ Transparency Comparability Some Principles of Indicator Development

  17. Information Literacy Indicators located within the LAMP Household Survey • Recognise information needs • Locate and evaluate the quality of information

  18. Information Literacy Indicators Located within the LAMP Household Survey c) Store and Retrieve information d) Make effective and ethical use of information

  19. Information Literacy Indicators Located within the LAMP Household Survey e) Apply information to create and communicate knowledge

  20. Examples of Information Literacy IndicatorsPISA School Assessment and DHS Household survey

  21. International Indicators for the Supply, Access and Reception of Rnformation, and of ICT Skills • The proposal is based on a three part division of the indicators: • Supply • Reception • Information literacy skills • Some important gaps in information • Reception • Book production • Definitional problems • Libraries

  22. Potential IL Indicators Including Sources, Problems and Links to Official Indicators for EFA, MDGs, and WSIS 1/6

  23. Potential IL Indicators Including Sources, Problems and Links to Official Indicators for EFA, MDGs, and WSIS 2/6

  24. Potential IL Indicators Including Sources, Problems and Links to Official Indicators for EFA, MDGs, and WSIS 3/6

  25. Potential IL Indicators Including Sources, Problems and Links to Official Indicators for EFA, MDGs, and WSIS 4/6

  29. Conclusion The development of IL Indicators will contribute to the efforts to monitor achievements in the international decade of literacy. The proposal that IL indicators be derived from secondary analysis of existing survey elements from LAMP will enable the task to be undertaken in a cost effective and effi cient manner so that data can be made available in the near future. The identification of information supply and access for all people to information are necessary prerequisites to enable people to practice IL, but information usage is the core IL task.
