GASQUE, Kelley Cristine Gonçalves Dias. Conceptual framework of information literacy. Ci. Inf. [online]. 2010, vol.39, n.3, pp.83-92. ISSN 0100-1965.

This article presents the concepts used in the scope of information literacy, providing a more rigorous and objective framework by means of the development of a structure of mental representations that integrates this process, as well as the resulting intrinsic links to other related concept systems. Such an undertaking is important in order to become possible to think considering the same referential basis of ideas. A conception of 'information literacy' is proposed, with emphasis on learning as a knowledge acquisition process that could therefore contribute to the sustainability of life and the human solidarity in contemporary society.
