The Department of Library and Information Science, University of Kerala in India is preparing to place before the Syndicate a proposal for implementing an information literacy programme in colleges affiliated to the university.

The programme aims at bridging the awareness divide between colleges in the urban and rural areas and to enable students in the latter category of colleges access subject-related information across a variety of formats. The Information Literacy package will aim to provide students the basic information about IT tools, to introduce to them electronic sources of information, train them in searching for information stored in a multi-media format, train students to use computer-aided instruction packages, introduce various online search programmes and methods to identify sources of information, including subject gateways, in the Internet and train students to use the `Online Public Access Catalogue. The proposed literacy programme will combine lectures with audio-visual presentations, computer-assisted teaching and printed course material.
