Product Description

It’s not hyperbole to conclude that in today’s world, information literacy is essential for survival and success; and also that, if left unchecked, the social consequences of widespread misinformation and information illiteracy will only continue to grow more dire. Thus its study must be at the core of every LIS education. While many books have been written on information literacy, this text is the first to examine information literacy from a cross-national, cross-cultural, and cross-institutional perspective. The ideal resource for introducing students to this important subject, this book also explores key related issues such as technology, public policy, human rights, community engagement, and advocacy. Drawing upon both the latest research and best practices, the authors address information literacy in ways relevant for all types of libraries, providing both the broader context and a range of applied strategies and programs for promoting and teaching information literacy. 

Examination copies are available for instructors who are interested in adopting this title for course use.
