Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
While readers may find it difficult to envision what information literacy actually looks like in action, Riedling makes an admirable attempt to do so in this relatively slim manual. In fact, the annotated endnote references for each chapter seem sometimes as long as the chapters themselves. The book is organized into six extensively researched chapters. The author includes boxed insets of pertinent questions, information, statistics, and sample formats for various applications. If you carry away nothing else, the following statistic should change how you teach technology: citing a survey commissioned by the OCLC, of the 1050 college students representing 18- to 24-year-olds throughout the nation, "only 4 percent of college students question the information they encounter" on the Internet. The information about how this all meshes together into a coherent whole that leads to learning and also aligns to district, state, and national requirement makes this book a worthwhile addition.-Mary R. Hofmann, Rivera Middle School, Merced, CA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
