Coonan, E. (2011). A New Curriculum for Information Literacy (ANCIL)- Teaching learning: perceptions of information literacy. http://www.dspace.cam.ac.uk/handle/1810/244637
This paper focuses on the higher education environment, and specifically on the factors influencing the undergraduate experience of information. It examines the variant, and at times conflicting, visions of information and ‘information overload’ held by the different players in the higher education field which have contributed to the contested state of information literacy in UK higher education as it currently stands. It argues that information literacy cannot be reduced to rote mastery of functional skills, and that its provision should not be left solely to library or support departments, and thus segregated from core academic practice and thought.
