Information literacy: challenges of implementation Editorial by Susie Andretta

Information literacy education is described by the authors of this special issue of Italics as fully embedded in the process of independent and lifelong learning practices. Full integration of information literacy is advocated at various levels of education, through the adoption of real-world assessment strategies, and through a critical pedagogy. These are necessary steps towards the development of independent learning, and ultimately, towards the establishment of a learning society.
