 Information Management Skills and Strategies

In November 1998 Mike Eisenberg (USA) was invited to Hong Kong to run an inservice course for librarians, teachers and managers. The focus for the course was a strategy for teaching and learning 'Management of Information Skills" called The BIG 6.
This web page was initially constructed as part of the follow up to that visit... it has now grown to be much more ... encouraging internet users to think more about Information Management and Literacy and not focus only on Information Technology
Suggestions on additions or improvements to this page should be send to Chris Smith.
