Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A must-have for every college information literacy librarian, this resource is chock-full of practical, timely, detailed information related to library instruction. Editor Ragains affirms in his preface, "It was my hope that this text would provide my busy colleagues with a starting point to springboard new ideas, help develop fresh lessons, or refine existing teaching plans." Ragains and a team of 18 college information literacy librarians from around the country expertly share teaching strategies customized to specialized student audiences (freshmen, individuals with special needs, distance learners, and those attending community college); provide detailed methods and bibliographic information for nine specific academic disciplines (English literature, art and art history, film studies, history, etc.); and offer insights for teaching special topics (legal research, government information, and patents). The companion CD features lesson plans, handouts, sample publicity, presentations, and other resources. The text is well organized, easy to read, and painstakingly thorough. This is sure to be a favorite among the information literacy field. Recommended for both novice and veteran librarians. Mary Todd Chesnut, Northern Kentucky Univ. Lib., Highland Heights Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
