Reframing Information Literacy as a Metaliteracy

Thomas P. Mackey and Trudi E. Jacobson have a new article titled Reframing Information Literacy as a Metaliteracy. It is in the January 2011 College & Research Libraries, vol. 72 no. 162-78.

From the abstract:

Social media environments and online communities are innovative collaborative technologies that challenge traditional definitions of information literacy. Metaliteracy is an overarching and self-referential framework that integrates emerging technologies and unifies multiple literacy types. This redefinition of information literacy expands the scope of generally understood information competencies and places a particular emphasis on producing and sharing information in participatory digital environments.
