Abstract

This paper explores the instability of the notion of “truth” in contemporary discourse and praxis, and its intersections with information literacy as a core priority of academic librarianship. The incorporation of feminist theory within the conceptual structure of information literacy informs the ways in which academic librarians seek to help students and researchers to become more aware of the context and origins of information, and to be able to examine it critically.
