The Indian Society for the Advancement of Library and Information Science (SALIS) has launched the e-Learning portal for awareness raising on Information Literacy in collaboration with United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
The portal aims to raise awareness, sensitize and enhance information literacy competency skills of common information users as well as information professionals and educators in the South Asian sub-region. The portal will cover a number of self-learning modules like Information Literacy, Lifelong Learning and Information Services for Disabled People and Freedom of Information. The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), the American Library Association (ALA) and other professional societies will provide content to promote the portal. The portal module will use Moodle open source learning content management software.
