• Information Literacy and Digital Literacy

      Hjørland, Birger; da Silva, Armando Malheiro (2008-12)
      This paper considers â information literacyâ as a scholarly skill associated with knowledge about information sources, â source criticismâ , critical thinking and theory of knowledge. From the perspective of Library and Information Science (LIS) it should be defined in relation to the research field of LIS: What we can offer and what we should offer in relation to this concept? It is argued that the core issue is the critical understanding of knowledge production and knowledge claims and how to enable users to make rational decisions in the overloaded information ecology. Emphasis should be put on the functions of the scholarly communication system considered from sociological and epistemological perspectives
