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.
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:...".
