Sažetak
In the era of global information and communication connectivity and the development of information and communication technology (ICT), leaving out young people from the education and application of ICT can be considered as a form of social exclusion that may determine their labor market status. In other words, one of the fundamental competencies of a contemporary individual is his or her information literacy (IL). It affects quality and flexibility of labor capital, contributing to the better-informed citizenry, their more active participation in society and more successful job-seeking. IL is the umbrella term for all other types of literacy (e.g., computer, the Internet, media) and it includes various forms of information, such as oral, printed and digital. The present paper is structured as follows. The first part outlines the Association of College and Research Libraries IL Standard with the list of indicators and learning outcomes that enable assessment and evaluation. Particular attention will be given to the first two sections of the Standard: identifying the information need and information seeking and retrieval. The second part deals with IL of young people in Croatia. Following a thorough literature review, the paper discusses the types of IL education offered to young people in Croatia as a part of a broader preparatory process for their prospective jobs and labor market. The methodology used in the study included searching web pages of various subjects, such as libraries (e.g., public, academic), the Croatian Employment Service, different associations and other institutions that might organize IL workshops or provide instruction for searching and retrieving the information needed. The final part of the paper outlines recommendations on the inclusion of IL education in the Croatian primary, secondary and tertiary education, with the focus on the first two sections of the Standard.
