Book Description

The Handbook of Multiple Source Use draws on theory and research within cognitive and educational psychology, the learning sciences, disciplinary education, information literacy, reading psychology, and social psychology, to present the first comprehensive research volume on this topic. Many learners both in and out of school have almost instantaneous access to an enormous range of information sources at present. In this book, broken into six sections, international scholars come together toward understanding factors that influence how individuals cope with the challenge of building knowledge from diverse, often conflicting, information.

"Understanding, interpreting, and then integrating multiple pieces of information, across multiple formats and sources, is among the most important and difficult tasks facing individuals in the current information age. The editors of this volume have compiled the leading experts on this topic for a must-read handbook for anyone interested in comprehension, learning, critical reasoning, or problem-solving, and in particular, the challenging questions that surround the use of multiple sources: why it is crucial, how it happens, when it fails, and how to improve it."
