More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The articles in this collection edited by Godwin (academic liaison librarian, Univ. of Bedfordshire, UK) and Parker (Information Literacy Unit manager, Open Univ., UK) fall under three headings: "Recent Developments in Information Literacy and Library 2.0," "Case Studies," and "What It Means for Information Professionals." In part one, the authors tackle new concepts such as transliteracy and informed learning and show how they work in practice. The case studies in part two lay the groundwork for instruction departments and library schools to try new things and update their curricula. Discussions of gaming, Zotero, EasyBib, Wikis, QR codes, and other Web 2.0 stalwarts seem stale at first, but further reading always reveals a fresh take or insightful research. Public and school libraries are briefly addressed in the third section. The book is a UK import, but its wisdom applies just as well to the United States. VERDICT This well-researched evaluation of how Web 2.0 has affected information literacy theory and practice is essential for those teaching the subject.—Paul Stenis, Dulaney-Browne Lib., Oklahoma City
