New Citation for Metaliteracy

Since it was first published in 2011, Reframing Information Literacy as a Metaliteracy has been cited in over 26 different publications.  We just noticed that the article was cited in a new article entitled “Littérature scientifique et formation à l’information, la situation des bioingénieurs à Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech (ULg) (synthèse bibliographique)” in the journal Biotechnol. Agron. Soc. Environ. 2013 17(1), 118-130 (Authors: Bernard Pochet, Philippe Lepoivre, and Paul Thirion).  According to the abstract for this essay (in English: “Scholarly publication and education in Information Literacy within the bioengineering curriculum, the Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech (ULg) case. A review.”) :

This article is based on a doctoral study on the role of scientific literature in the teaching of bioengineering at Gembloux. It is essentially a summary incorporating recent advances in Information Literacy. Data analysis indicates that the bioengineers working at Gembloux publish at least as much as research as other scientists in Belgium. These bioengineers choose to publish articles in journals with a high impact factor, preferring to read articles rather than books and using all the electronic resources available to them. Their fields of research, and reading, go beyond the bounds of agronomy in the strictest sense (Bernard Pochet, Philippe Lepoivre, and Paul Thirion).
