While there are many books on the burgeoning phenomenon of Web 2.0, this one, with an impressive array of contributing experts, presents a unique perspective on how best to use Web 2.0 in a classroom setting. The text provides clear examples of how the philosophies, tools, and technologies that encompass Web 2.0-and, by extension, Library 2.0-can be leveraged to enhance and promote IL. The four parts cover the basics: implications for IL learning, Library 2.0 and IL in practice, and consideration of the future. Interesting case studies and some step-by-step instructions are provided for integrating new technologies such as blogs, wikis, podcasts, RSS, and other social networking tools into curricula. Although there's a heavy emphasis on delivery in an academic setting, there are dedicated chapters for both public and school libraries. A quick read, albeit a little short on illustrations, that succeeds in introducing thought-provoking tips and strategies for enhancing both the virtual and physical learning environment. Recommended reading for academic librarians, or anyone teaching information literacy.
