Information literacy teaches the individual to understand the sources of information they are analyzing and how credible the authors are who are writing the content. The blog Infolitnow.com (http://infolitnow.com/about-2/) indicates they want to "bring information literacy to the masses using information literacy principals" as noted below in the purpose statement. Okay then do it correctly.
Give us your credentials, list your last names and your authority and expertise for us to take your work seriously.
Make sure your links work, as currently the link for Melange Information Services, Inc. does not work!
IMHO, you have a lot of ads on your blog which reduces your credibility for this type of content.
Check your spelling, as editor is spelled wrong. ("Infolitnow was the brain child of Senior Editior Scott...") "We Ask the Right Questions and Give you the Answers. We are a site that writes about everyday issues that will affect your everyday life.
Infolitnow was the brain child of Senior Editior Scott and Editor Dr. Lana W. Our goal is to bring information to the masses using the principals of information literacy. Infolitnow is a subdevition ot Melange Information Services: Mélange Information Services, Inc. offers 21st century college and career readiness training designed specifically to prepare learners and workers to function at the top of their game in a 21st century world economy. We take those mind set and skills and bring them to this new venture Infolitnow.com."
I would like to understand the thinking of the authors of Infolitnow.com on the questions listed below:
Why are you promoting information literacy but not giving your credentials so the user can evaluate the worth of the content relative to your expertise as authors?
Why is there a broken link into a website (http://www.melangeinfo.com/index.html) that is equally vague?
Why are you using the concepts of the Big6 (http://www.big6.com/) without crediting the original authors?
What do you mean by the word "subdevition" as I find no definitions for this word anywhere. "Infolitnow is a subdevition ot Melange Information Services:...".
It would be good for our readers to understand how following your examples of information literacy put them at the "top of their game in a 21st century world economy".
