Book Description

The Collection includes eight books from the world’s leading information literacy experts and practitioners. The books included are:

A Guide to Teaching Information Literacy

101 tips

"...this is an essential book for those new to teaching information literacy, and a useful addition to the collection of experienced practitioners. It is certainly one to which I will return in the future."

- Journal of Information Literacy

Expert Internet Searching, 4th edition

Phil Bradley

"Whether you are an advanced searcher wanting more options or a beginner just venturing out into the world of search engines, this book covers it. The book is definitely worth a read to make sense of the complexities for searching the world of social media and Google."

- Australian Academic and Research Libraries

Going Beyond Google Again

Strategies for using and teaching the invisible web

Jane Devine and Francine Egger-Sider

"Devine and Egger-Sider make a convincing case in arguing that educators and librarians need to hammer home the importance of using a toolbox of search techniques rather than simply relying on one or two that only skim the web’s surface."

- Times Higher Education

Improving Students' Web Use and Information Literacy

James E Herring

“Herring’s book is an ideal resource for teachers and teacher librarians, a useful and accessible tool, a quick guide to the best use of emerging technologies in a school environment."

- Managing Information

Metaliteracy

Reinventing information literacy to empower learners

Thomas P Mackey and Trudi E Jacobson

"This book is for anyone interested in how social media, mobile technologies and open and online environments can enhance their teaching and learning practice...This book gives ample background to an important redefinition of information literacy."

Rethinking Information Literacy

A practical framework for supporting learning

Edited by Jane Secker and Emma Coonan

"…a useful and relevant update. It provides good discussions of the current state of IL, and strong arguments for strengthening of the role of librarians and the increased participation of other professionals. Its theoretical component is supported by case studies and detailed practical advice. This is recommended for those interested in information literacy and developments in this field."

- Australian Library Journal

Metaliteracy in Practice

Edited by Thomas P Mackey and Trudi E Jacobson

Editors Trudi E. Jacobson and Thomas P. Mackey, respected leaders in distance education and library instruction, reframed information literacy in their acclaimed previous book, Metaliteracy: Reinventing information literacy to empower learners, which provided an inclusive framework that encompasses all the newer literacies such as digital, visual, cyber and media literacy. Metaliteracy in Practice follows on from this book, placing its concepts firmly in real-world practice and delivering a compilation of innovative and practical teaching ideas from some of the leading thinkers in library and information literacy instruction today.
