Book Description :

This book has two aims: firstly to present an investigation into information literacy by looking at how people engage with information to accomplish tasks or solve problems in personal, academic and professional contexts (also known as the relational approach). This view of information literacy illustrates a learner-centred perspective that will be of interest to educators who wish to go beyond the teaching of information skills. The second aim of this book is to illustrate how the relational approach can be used as an investigative framework. As a detailed account of a relational study, this book will appeal to researchers interested in using the relational framework to examine pedagogical experiences from the learner’s perspective. Offers an investigation of the relational approach to examine information literacy from the perspective of the learner and the educator within diverse pedagogical conditions, both academic and professional Presents concrete examples of measuring the impact of the information literacy experience through the application of newly developed information literacy practices to unknown situations (described as Transfer), or through the changes in the learner’s view of the world (described as Transformation) Written by an internationally known scholar and practitioner of information literacy

Book Description :

Learning information literacy reports on an empirical study that explores the qualitatively different ways students in an Australian university experience learning how to find and use information. Recognised as a generic skill and graduate attribute that enables independent and lifelong learning, information literacy is increasingly accepted as a broad and complex educational and social concept. The study uses phenomenography as its methodological and theoretical basis. Phenomenography is a qualitative research approach that originated in educational research, where it was developed to gain a greater insight into student learning in educational settings. It has received considerable recent support in information literacy research. This study is based on interviews with 15 education students. Seven of the participants were drawn from an undergraduate Technology Education program, while the remaining eight were a mixture of undergraduate and postgraduate students undertaking more traditional text-based courses. The study reveals that these students experienced learning information literacy in a range of inclusive ways. In order of increasing complexity, these were: 1. Learning to find information; 2. Learning a process to use information; 3. Learning to use information to create a product; 4. Learning to use information to build a personal knowledge base in a subject area; 5. Learning to use information to advance disciplinary knowledge; 6. Learning to use information to grow as a person and to contribute to others. 2 While there are no other studies that explore students{u2019} ways of experiencing learning information literacy, this study discusses the experiences of information literacy that are represented in key empirical studies that use the phenomenographic research approach and three information literacy curriculum models. Through juxtaposing the results with these studies and models, ways of experiencing information literacy and learning information literacy are illuminated. Implications for information literacy education are also discussed. Understanding the different ways that students experience learning information literacy will assist librarians, academics and other educators to design and deliver information literacy education across this range of experiences and facilitate more expansive experiences for students.

Book Description :

Taking an international approach, this book explores two main models of Information Literacy or IL: the SCONUL (Society of College, National and University Libraries) Seven Pillars of Information Skills and the IL competencies identified by the ALA (American Library Association). Practical examples for the development of IL skills identified by these models are illustrated using printed and web-based resources. The process of integrating IL provision within a programme of study is outlined to illustrate two strategies underpinning this integration at generic-skills level, the ‘plug & play’ approach, and at subject-specific level, the ‘research skills approach’. A range of diagnostic and assessment methods, to monitor the iterative process of IL skills development, are also presented within these frameworks. Explores practical applications of two major IL models Explores strategies to integrate IL provision in a multi-disciplinary environment Illustrates the developments of independent learning skills through examples taken from different levels of provision at course level and from different levels of competences at user level

Book Description :

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.

Book Description :

This book explains how information literacy (IL) is essential to the contemporary workplace and is fundamental to competent, ethical and evidence-based practice. In today’s information-driven workplace, information professionals must know when research evidence or relevant legal, business, personal or other information is required, how to find it, how to critique it and how to integrate it into one’s knowledge base. To fail to do so may result in defective and unethical practice which could have devastating consequences for clients or employers. There is an ethical requirement for information professionals to meet best practice standards to achieve the best outcome possible for the client. This demands highly focused and complex information searching, assessment and critiquing skills. Using a range of new perspectives, Information Literacy in the Workplace demonstrates several aspects of IL’s presence and role in the contemporary workplace, including IL’s role in assuring competent practice, its value to employers as a return on investment, and its function as an ethical safeguard in the duty and responsibilities professionals have to clients, students and employers. Chapters are contributed by a range of international experts, including Christine Bruce, Bonnie Cheuk, Annemaree Lloyd with a foreword from Jane Secker. Content covered includes: examination of the value and impact of IL in the workplace how IL is experienced remotely, beyond workplace boundariesIL’s role in professional development organizational learning and knowledge creationdeveloping information professional competencieshow to unlock and create value using IL in the workplace. Readership: This book will be useful for librarians and LIS students in understanding how information literacy is experienced by professions they support; academics teaching professional courses; professionals (e.g. medical, social care, legal and business based) and their employers in showing that IL is essential to best practice and key to ethical practice.

Book Description :

What would a synthetic theory of Digital, Media and Information Literacy (DMIL) look like? Radical Information Literacy presents, for the first time, a theory of DMIL that synthesises the diversity of perspectives and positions on DMIL, both in the classroom and the workplace, and within the informal learning processes of society. This title is based on original analysis of how decisions are made about the relevance of information and the other resources used in learning, showing how society has privileged objective approaches (used in rule-based decision making) to the detriment of subjective and intersubjective perspectives which promote individual and community contexts. The book goes on to analyse the academic and popular DMIL literature, showing how the field may have been, consciously or unwittingly, complicit in the ‘objectification’ of learning and the disempowerment of individuals and communities. Alternative ways of conceiving the subject are then presented, towards a reversal of these trends. Synthesises key theorists of digital, media and information literacy and information behaviour Includes the field of ‘community informatics’ Conducts a bibliometric analysis of a broad spectrum of writings on digital, media and information literacy, analysing the connections between them and the frames of DMIL within which they are located
