To bridge awareness divide between urban, rural areas Aims at bridging the
awareness divide between colleges in the urban and rural areas

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Department of Library and Information Science,
University of Kerala is preparing to place before the Syndicate a proposal
for implementing an information literacy programme in colleges affiliated
to the university.

The programme aims at bridging the awareness divide between colleges in
the urban and rural areas and to enable students in the latter category of
colleges access subject-related information across a variety of formats.

The Information Literacy package will aim to provide students the basic
information about IT tools, to introduce to them electronic sources of
information, train them in searching for information stored in a
multi-media format, train students to use computer-aided instruction
packages, introduce various online search programmes and methods to
identify sources of information, including subject gateways, in the
Internet and train students to use the `Online Public Access Catalogue.

The project proposal drawn up by head of the department G. Devarajan
points out that the lack of awareness among students in colleges located
in rural areas would lead to under utilisation of information resources
even if IT tools are made available in such colleges. Therefore, it is
necessary to conduct an information literacy programme  one that includes
visual literacy, media literacy, computer literacy, digital literacy and
network literacy  among such students, the project document says.
