Subramanyam Revisited: Creating a New Model for Information Literacy Instruction

Sheila R. Curl

Abstract

Krishna Subramanyam arranged scientific and technical literature in a circular model in the 1970s. As a pedagogical construct, the circle conceptualizes the processes of producing and consuming information. Although more than twenty years old, the model is still valid.

This paper presents the model, the revision, and its application to the information literacy curriculum for engineering and technology students.
