Information Literacy is an important component of library and information organizations at the local, regional, national and international level. From the newly formed Science and Technology Section’s (STS) Information Literacy Committee to the long standing Instruction Section (IS), both of which are within the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Division of the American Library Association (ALA), the level of functionality varies. This column reviews information literacy/library instruction units in national and international organizations and their various attributes.
