Organizations constitute the restructuring conditions to maintain their functions and enable adaption to new competitive conditions for modern changes as a part of globalization. In this context, the emerging concept of learning organization and organizational learning provide opportunities for creating new information, access to information, sharing and transferring information issues. The concept of organizational literacy is considered as an important component of the information literacy for organizations in terms of surviving in the varying marketing conditions, keeping alive the organizational memorials, adapting to the organizational culture and gaining competitive advantage. In this study organizational learning and organizational literacy concepts were explored in the literature as related concepts in terms of organizational identity and organizational culture. The results were obtained via literature review and reflected the importance of two complementary concepts, organizational literacy and organizational learning, on learning organization.
