Information literacy programs of school libraries in the Philippines
This study aimed to identify the characteristics of information literacy programs (ILP) of school libraries in the Philippines and to identify the challenges faced by school libraries in managing ILPs. The goal was to create a unified ILP for Philippine school libraries.
The respondents of the study were composed of school librarians who attended the Philippine Association of School Librarians (PASLI) General Assembly in 2017. Two sets of self-administered questionnaires were used to gather data; and, statistical techniques such as frequencies and percentages were used for interpretation and analysis.
It was concluded that having a written policy with all the attributes of an effective ILP is deemed crucial as it presents both theoretical and concrete ways for schools to address the IL needs of their learners. However, the success in creating an environment where IL skills flourish lies in the responsibility of all the members of the school community – working together to achieved the goals.
