I have a few references that may help you grapple with the underlying  
epistemology and politics of information literacy programs:

Kapitzke, Cushla (2003). Information literacy: a positivist  
epistemology and a politics of outformation. Educational Theory,  
53(1), 37-53.

different concepts, different truths? Journal of Librarianship and  
Information Science, 37(2), 82-88.

picture. Journal of Documentation, 62(5), 570-583.
