Just Released: Towards Information Literacy Indicators

Towards Information Literacy Indicators
46 pages; PDF.

From the report's summary/news release:

A comprehensive perspective on what information literacy means and how to measure its impact on society.

Governments and international organizations are looking for ways to measure the information society. Despite the good intentions, there is a tendency to focus almost exclusively on the technology involved. Yet, the real interest lies in monitoring the impact of these technologies ­ not simply access to them.

In response, the UNESCO Information for All Programme (IFAP) and the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) are working closely to develop a comprehensive framework to measure the impact of knowledge societies from the perspective of people and priorities of governments.
