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. This text will benefit readers in these primary audiences: academic librarians involved with information literacy efforts at their institutions, faculty teaching in higher education, upper-level college administrators involved in academic accreditation, and high school librarians working with college-bound students.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003ch3 id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresH3\" class=\"prod-features-h3\"\u003eFeatures\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eProvides an essential, foundational text on the theory behind the new ACRL Framework for Information Literacy\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eSupplies librarians with the context to frame the work they do with information literacy in the same manner as faculty\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003cspan\u003eDemonstrates how librarians sharing pedagogical approaches with faculty enable more cooperative projects, better faculty-librarian communication, and truly integrated librarian instruction\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cul id=\"dnn_ctr936_ProductView_featuresUL\" class=\"prod-features-li\"\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e"}
