This book offers practical strategies for all library and information practitioners and policy makers with responsibility for developing and delivering information literacy programmes to their users.
This new book picks up where the best-selling Information Literacy meets Library 2.0 left off. In the last three years the information environment has changed dramatically, becoming increasingly dominated by the social and the mobile. This new book asks where we are now, what is the same and what has changed, and, most crucially, how do we as information professionals respond to the new information literacy and become a central part of the revolution itself?
The book is divided into three distinct sections. Part 1 explores the most recent trends in technology, consumption and literacy, while Part 2 is a resource bank of international case studies that demonstrate the key trends and their effect on information literacy and offer innovative ideas to put into practice. Part 3 assesses the impact of these changes on librarians and what skills and knowledge they must acquire to evolve alongside their users.
Some of the key topics covered are:
- the evolution of ‘online’ into the social web as mainstream
- the use of social media tools in information literacy
- the impact of mobile devices on information literacy delivery
- shifting literacies, such as metaliteracy, transliteracy and media literacy, and their effect on information literacy.
Readership: This is essential reading for all library and information practitioners and policy makers with responsibility for developing and delivering information literacy programmes to their users. It will also be of great interest to students of library and information studies particularly for modules relating to literacy, information behaviour and digital technologies.

"How can libraries and librarians provide instruction to enhance their patrons’ information literacy? The short answer is through understanding what information literacy is and then using tools and media to provide necessary tutorials...there is much helpful information, especially in the case studies, for technical communicators who are producing tutorials for a variety of platforms...company libraries especially could benefit from adding a copy for their collections."
