The National Policy on Teaching Information Literacy Skills


  • H. Inci Önal



Society is being transformed by global competition and the power of technology. Everyone needs to develop the capacity to search, select, use, and synthesize vast amounts of information to create knowledge. Changes in societies and education systems have made school libraries more important today than ever before and have increased the need to think about how the national policy on teaching information literacy skills should be charted. Many question whether today’s education systems and national policies prepare students to be lifelong, adaptable learners. This paper explores the history, growth, development, and content of the information literacy applications within the Turkish school library system.
