  1. Isn’t Info Lit about evaluating the information you find, rather than just learning how to search a dozen different database interfaces using Boolean or learning what all the library terminology means?

  2. Information literacy, I suggest, should be about awareness of information tools and their coverage etc, plus, as you say, evaluating information. It shouldn’t be about learning how to use tools, click by click. Yuck – I used to hate it when I was supposed to teach that sort of thing to students. Totally pointless in most cases anyway, as the interfaces would regularly change.
