PINTO MOLINA, Maria  y  URIBE TIRADO, Alejandro. Training and self-training in information literacy: A program of mentoring in university libraries. Investig. bibl [online]. 2010, vol.24, n.52, pp. 63-95. ISSN 0187-358X.

Information Literacy (INFOLIT) in university academic services, libraries and learning resources centers is a training requirement that ought to be offered to personnel at diverse levels and through several approaches. In order to achieve excellent outcomes, the INFOLIT program leader must have good knowledge of models, standards and good practices in order to offer adequate skills and attitude sets in term of communication, technology, documentation and didactics. In light of its effectiveness in the realm of training and self-training, formal mentoring is a valuable organizational strategy university authorities can deploy. Librarians and academics wishing to be trained, as well as experienced trainers (mentors) and organizational training coordinators may grow into these competencies and thereby improve both process and outcomes of INFOLIT teaching-learning within the university.
