Abstract

National responses to the global COVID-19 pandemic provided the opportunity to gain insight into characteristics of societal information cultures. Experiences from four different countries (China, Australia, the Netherlands, and Iceland) were collected and analyzed from an information literacy perspective. Research was guided by Giddens’ structuration theory.
