Teaching Information Competencies

I am hearing this quite a few times recently. Some folks are saying that calling our training activities “Information Literacy” does not ring the bell with the people we want to train. Apparently, some think it implies that they are illiterate and we, therefore, end up digging oursleves out of a hole with the very people we want to empower.
Hmmmm, someone suggested that ‘information fluency’ might work better.
Anyone have any other good phrases or words? We must have evolved past the ‘bibiographic instruction’ or worse, “BI” of my youth!
