From the Paper:

"In order for information literacy to be effective in organizations, leaders will have to effectively communicate the business objective and various pertinent topics as they relate to the future and existence of the organization. The communication will have to occur starting at the top with the leaders espousing information literacy into the methods and procedures in their organization, identifying what information is need, determining how it should be stored, analyzed, processed, and disseminated to the rest of the organization in a way that everyone understands it."
