Once a learner grasps a threshold concept, new pathways to understanding and learning are opened up. The authors of this book provide readers with both a substantial introduction to and a working knowledge of this emerging theory and then describe how it can be adapted for local information literacy instruction contexts.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFive threshold concepts are presented and covered in depth within the context of how they relate and connect to each other. The chapters offer an in-depth explanation of the threshold concepts model and identify how it relates to various disciplines (and our own discipline, information science) and to the understandings we want our students to acquire.

Nonetheless, some librarians have hesitated to incorporate the movement into their programming because their libraries do not have dedicated makerspaces. If that describes you, then take heart.

The menu of ideas is broken into four types of programming. \"Appetizers\" add a taste of the Maker movement to existing library programs. \"Entrees\" present full programs for a lengthy one-day event or a short series. \"Side Dishes\" are programs you can use if you have limited staff, budget, space, or any combination of those. \"Desserts\" are low-tech programs, suitable for young children. Each \"recipe\" includes extensions, variations, and curriculum tie-ins that give you even more ways to present the program ideas, whether to a different audience or as part of other related activities.
