Today, the right to information and the ability to use it have become educational concerns on an international scale. Necessary to the productivity of companies, the advancement of individuals in the “information society” and to democratic life, mastering information continues to be recommended by international agencies as a new human right (UNESCO, IFLA, and Council of Europe). But the problem of information literacy or culture informationnelle, as the expression is formulated in the francophone community, is embedded in extremely diverse realities and sectors. This reality raises questions of the territory of information literacy, in particular with respect to cultural approaches associated with the digital domain (computer literacy) or with the media (media literacy) such that the current era seems to be one of an initial culmination, but also of restructuring. The journal’s next thematic issue will therefore focus on the theoretical dimensions and issues of practical questions while broadening the field of study of cultural literacy to include the concept of “transliteracy.”
