Information literacy in Scotland

With so many central and local government organisations moving to a digital by default strategy the pressure is on to have a population that not only has access to the web but  has the skills to access the information that they require.

Information Skills for a 21st Century Scotland is an online community of practice which is open to everyone both within and outside the information profession, primarily in Scotland but also elsewhere. It is for anyone who is interested in information literacy and associated skills and competencies.
