The library and academic research, in particular, have been changed profoundly by the explosion of publishing, the break-neck pace of changes in information delivery
technology, and the glorious and dauntingly chaotic flowering of information on
the Internet. As libraries, information specialists, media specialists, librarians,
and faculty members struggle to keep up with these rapidly proliferating changes,
they must more deliberately prepare students for effective use of information.
Along with greater demand for rapid, flexible, and facile learning comes the need
for practicing deep and thoughtful engagement with this new-found wealth. One
response is a widespread interest in “information literacy” as one essential aspect
of general education (Pedersen,2003).
