As the importance of information literacy has gained increased recognition, so too have academic library professionals intensified their efforts to champion, activate, and advance these capabilities in others. To date, however, little attention has focused on advancing these essential competencies amongst practitioner advocates.This paper helps redress the paucity of professional literature on the topic of workplace information literacy among library professionals.
