Questions autour de la culture informationnelle

Abstract : Information literacy is a new and complex concept, generally presented as an answer to the information technologies' stakes and the “knowledge societies”. But its aims and educational contents are not well defined and its epistemological assumptions are not clearly stated. This paper presents several interwoven questions, and makes an attempt at identifying the main questions pertaining to the information literacy's aims, stakes, content and assumptions. In conclusion, four possible levels of global information's training are described, from the practical to the reflective level.
