The increasing availability of large files of digital information, with ever-improving retrieval systems and interfaces, makes accessing information simpler and quicker than ever. Ironically, these improvements have brought with them a number of ‘information problems’; information overload, information anxiety, information avoidance, infobesity, and so on.
This talk reviews some of these problems, and suggests that ‘digital literacy’, a variant on the older idea of information literacy, may offer solutions.
