Info Lit in the Round – Three Spheres of Information Literacy

Another post about LILAC. Geoff Walton gave a paper at LILAC 2012 about ‘Three Spheres of Information Literacy.’ The three spheres are: evaluate / use / find.

Walton asked those who attended the talk to rate each sphere in order of importance. Then he also asked the subscribers of LIS-Infoliteracy discussion list to rate the spheres. The results are interesting and are given in the below article –

Three spheres of Information Literacy by Geoff Walton

Three Sphere-agos :)How would you rate the three spheres? Which one is most important – knowing how to find information or knowing what to do with that information when its found or being able to judge the information itself?
