Om boka

This book explores the landscape of information literacy (IL) theory and practice, providing an up-to-date guidebook for anyone wishing to develop their knowledge, understanding and delivery of IL in all aspects of lifelong learning.



From politicians and policy makers through funders and education providers to cultural heritage organizations, employers, community groups and social activists there is a growing awareness of the impact of digitization on engagement with information. Beginning with a recent history of IL to give context, Theory and Practice of Information Literacy then provides a detailed review of theoretical models and practical approaches using real life examples from the wide information landscape.



This book will examine key issues around information literacy from an academic and professional perspective, and will:




provide a detailed understanding of the theory and practice of information literacy and associated areas
identify and discuss the challenges presented by the lifelong learning nature of IL in a digital world
enable the development of appropriate skillsets of library and information professionals as central players in the delivery of IL in education, workplace and society.
