Map: InfoLit in Ibero-America and the World

On this map, you can find more than 600 websites of libraries or academic programs, especially at a university level, located in Ibero-American countries and around the world (more than 60 countries) that are developing Information Literacy programs or support the inclusion of information literacy in different curricula.

Cases have been found, after reviewing literature and content in different databases, repositories and specialized websites (Web of Science, Scopus, EBSCO, E-lis, RedALyC, Scielo, Wiki ALFIN / Iberoamérica, Information Literacy Weblog).
Steps to build the Map:

Stage 1: Ibero-America (2010-2015)
See papers: http://eprints.rclis.org/16522/ - http://eprints.rclis.org/20803/

Stage 2: Every World (2015-2016)
This map was collaboration in updating for Ibero-America, and its extension for every world of students and future librarians: Daniel Mejía Ushima (2015-2) and María Isabel Flórez (2016-1).

1st January 2016 – Launch of InformAll  by Stéphane Goldstein

As of 1st January, InformAll exists as an organisation in its own right. InformAll brings together partners and experts from different communities and interest groups, within and beyond the library world, that offer distinctive perspectives on the developing understanding of information literacy. Over the past three years, it ran as a programme of activities under the auspices of the closed Research Information Network (RIN), which closed at the end of December. InformAll has now been set up as a distinct community interest company, a social enterprise that seeks to harness the expertise of its partners to work collaboratively on research and other projects.
