Material type: ArticleArticlePublisher: 2016Description: 255-266 str.Other title: Information literacy and open access in Croatian academic libraries [Naslov na engleskom:].Subject(s): informacijska pismenost | otvoreni pristup | visokoškolske knjižnice - Hrvatks | 5.04 | open access, information literacy, oa literacy, Croatia, academic libraries | open access, information literacy, oa literacy, Croatia, academic libraries In: Library review 65 (2016), 4/5 ; str. 255-266Summary: Two movements are extremely important for scholarly communication in the 21st century. The older one is information literacy (IL) movement that evolved from library user education (sometimes also called bibliographic instructions). Today, its scope is expanded, it entered classrooms and is an important part of lifelong learning. Scholarly communication is impossible without implementation of IL skills – scholars from all disciplines have to know how to search for information, how to evaluate it, how to produce and present new information in a proper, ethical manner. They have to know how to make their information more visible and accessible, how to improve its quality and impact. Another movement that can help scholars in their efforts to publish scholarly information is Open Access (OA). Its idea is to make scholarly information accessible to the widest possible public, without barriers and restrictions, so it could be used to improve scholarly communication, to advance science and to ensure progress of mankind. Because of diversity of all kinds of information that can be accessed for free on the Internet, it is important to develop and accept IL skills to ensure that scholarly information in OA is valid, reliable, properly published and used. Academic libraries should have an important role in developing those skills among their users (students and scholars).
