Metaliteracy   Metaliteracy
Reinventing Information Literacies to Empower Learners

Thomas P. Mackey and Trudi E. Jacobson
Price: £49.95
Price (to CILIP members): £39.96
ISBN: 9781783300129

Information literacy thought leaders Thomas Mackey and Trudi Jacobson build a persuasive case ‘that information literacy needs to be far more inclusive than its traditional conception. The information literacy knowledge and skills that have customarily been taught involve locating, accessing, evaluating, and using information, but information primarily in text formats.

It has been generally assumed that these sources of information emanate from entities that would be considered publishers, often traditional book and periodical publishers. However, the internet, web 2.0, mobile applications, and social media environments have dramatically altered the situation.’

Metaliteracy will help readers understand that ‘media literacy, visual literacy, digital literacy, and a host of other specific literacies are critical for informed citizens in the twenty-first century.

Information literacy needs to be reframed to encompass these literacies, and this conception of information literacy will have a dramatic effect of how it is taught and what students learn.

Readership:

Librarians, information professionals and LIS students.
