Infographic: Information Literacy Issues

Developing information literacy skills is perhaps the most important issue in 21st Century Learning and yet the struggle to do so is an uphill battle. We asked our friends in the library world what they think of the state of information literacy in schools. Check out this cool infographic to see what we learned.

    It would be nice to see a similar survey of faculty, and another of students, asking many of the same questions, to determine their opinion of the importance of librarians, etc.

    No information given on who and how many people you polled. Can you add it?

      Hi Barbara, the information is based on a survey answered by 329 K-12 and college librarians. We also added this to the bottom of the image.

    @Heidi: it will be nice to see a similar survey to the administration also, and, as a matter of fact, identify all stakeholders before datamine them…

      Hi Tininha,

      The country polled was the U.S., and the survey was sent out in early April 2012

    A very intersting survey. In order to cite it and use it as reference could you add some information about the institution behind the survey. Who did it? How was it done?
    Thanks alot

      Hi Ruth,

      We (EasyBib) came up with the questions and sent them out in a multiple choice survey to librarians across the country.

      I hope that helps 🙂
