I delivered this presentation at the APLA 2009 conference in Halifax. Here's the description from the program:

Library notions of information literacy are almost always tied to written information, but an increasing amount of information that is created and consumed is in visual formats (photographs, illustration, video, animation, multimedia, etc.). As we help people negotiate the new media of the Information Age, what should our role as librarians be? Some industries regularly manipulate images to create an ideal reality (e.g. advertising), while others claim that images represent the truth (e.g. journalism). Are we as adept as w think at distinguishing truth from fiction?

Warning: some of the fonts didn't translate perfectly.

The slides might not make sense on their own, so here's my script (that I loosely followed): http://www.slideshare.net/mjdelia/information-literacy-in-the-age-of-youtube-script

Here's a handout of further resources: http://www.slideshare.net/mjdelia/information-literacy-in-the-age-of-youtube-further-reading
