MetadataShow full item record
Information Literacy is the library operation which makes the library user able to search, retrieve, evaluate, select and use the information resources. Information Literacy is the capability of critical thinking; it is the basis of the continuing education and self -education of the professionals. This skill is more important for Medical Scientists, as they face the continuing change of their discipline. The paper proves the significance of information literacy for the staff of the hospitals, as prerequisite of the qualitative services and the organisation of hospital libraries too. It uses comparative data of the state of the art of the Greek medical libraries and proposes the important items for the success of that innovative and cost-effective service.
