Maury, Y. (2009). Information culture and web 2.0: new practices, new knowledge. (France)

Abstract: From the observation of school librarians’ usual practices in three secondary schools in Paris (2006-2009), with an ethnographic approach, the aim of this study is to better define the information culture, in particular which kinds of knowledge are necessary to learn, live and evolve in the information society context. Thus, the study points up that the web 2.0, in order to be an educational tool, needs an accompanied digital conduct. New training needs appear, characterized by the emergence of new knowledge (digital identity, traceability, informative survey...) and the reconfiguration of some others (information ethics, indexing, mediation, authority, intellectual property, relevance…).
