Abstract [en]

Recently, in the election that took place in the United States, we have heard a lot about "fake news" and their influence. The discourse of “fake news” and “alternative facts” points to the importance of information literacy. The objective of the panel is to bring together experts from different countries to discuss how they perceive the future of information literacy (IL). The question that arises is will IL be the sole focus of librarians, information professionals, and educators, or will it be regarded as a lifelong learning skill that affects different aspects of our everyday life such as health, workplace, and even culture? The session will begin with a short overview of the recent literature on this issue, followed by the panellists’ findings and examples of research projects, as well as their insights about new approaches in the area of IL. The panel will conclude with an engaging discussion with the audience to identify future trends in IL.
