The timelines are a great technological resource offering educational
opportunities to learn a subject, and research to build a state of art.

In the field of Information Literacy after a literature review and Web
resources available, they have not been widely used.

For this reason, as another contribution to the "Crusade for Information
Literacy in Ibero-America" ( - presents an initial version of these 3
INFOLIT timelines (International, Ibero-America �Spain, Portugal and
Latin-America�, and Colombia) that utilize different web resources, began to
be built, and expects the contribution of all, gradually expanding,
complementing and correcting.

These contributions will join the celebration of 10 years, which took place a
few days ago, of the establishment by the ALA / ACRL of Information Literacy
Competency Standards for Higher Education, which marked a milestone in the
development of INFOLIT in different contexts, in different types of libraries
and educational institutions, not just a university level.

International INFOLIT Timeline (1974 - ...)
Ibero-America Timeline: (1985 - ...)
Colombia INFOLIT Timeline: (2000 - ...)

Pending the contribution of all to go completing them more every day...
to build together the history, present and future in the Informational Literacy...

We apologize for any duplicate messages to be sent to different e-lists and
