English abstract

Information systems change and so Information Literacy will change. In the world of the Web 2.0 the user becomes a co-producer. The library-based view on Information Literacy, for which the first (Melvil) Dewey in the title stands for, has to be supplemented by a more holistic and critical view on Information Literacy with an emphasis on "learning by doing" (John Dewey) and on promoting reflection about information and its production. This view is called here "Information Literacy 2.0".

Item type: Conference paper
