Critical Information Literacy: Implications for Instructional PracticeJournal of Academic Librarianship (2006)
AbstractThis article uses critical literacy theory to define information literacy. It argues that to be educators, librarians must focus less on information transfer and more on developing critical consciousness in students. Using concepts from literacy theory, the author suggests ways library practice would change if librarians redefined themselves as literacy educators. Reprinted by permission of the publisher.
