Abstract

Because the explosion of electronic and print information requires that productive citizens be able to locate, evaluate, synthesize, and communicate ever-increasing amounts of text, hypertext, visual stimuli, and data, the need for information literacy among students is paramount. However, perceptual barriers to implementation by both teachers and librarians keep information literacy a much talked about, much written about, yet infrequently attained goal in K-12 education. This paper discusses obstacles to K-12 information literacy and presents possible solutions.
