Special Interest Groups
Information Literacy in European countries: state of the art
The group was established at the very beginning of the EnIL activities, and in June 2003 produced the book Information Literacy in Europe: a first insight into the state of the art of Information Literacy in the European Union. Carla BASILI (ed.), Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Roma 2003, 315 pp.
Information Literacy Policies and Research
The policy and research dimensions of Information Literacy constitute the core strand of EnIL activities. Diverse levels of Information Literacy policies are identified and analysed (European Union, country, learning sector, Higher Education, institutional). Result of this group is the book
Information Literacy at the crossroad of Education and Information Policies in Europe. Carla BASILI (ed.), Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Roma 2008, 301 pp.
The grid of analysis proposed by the editor in the call for chapters constitutes the scientific basis of the EnIL Observatory on Information Literacy Policies and Research that will be soon on line.
Information Literacy in Higher Education
Focus is the curricular configuration of Information Literacy in different disciplinary contexts and information habits.
Information Literacy in Schools
Development and experimentation of Information Literacy in the school context. The role of school librarians and the process of “Teaching the teachers” are particularly focused.
