Overview

The Challenge of Internet Literacy: The Instruction--Web Convergence gives you an overview of how the Internet is being used in academic libraries today, with a focus on the dual role librarians serve as instructors and researchers. A resourceful guide for academic and instruction librarians and an informative text for graduate library school students and Internet trainees, this book includes concise summaries, keyword listings, and up-to-date bibliographies for each chapter.

With in-depth coverage of bibliographic and Internet instruction, Web pages and home pages, and Internet sources and resources, The Challenge of Internet Literacy gives you insight into actual projects and processes in use in libraries today. You'll learn by seeing theory in action as you read about:

  • a behavioral inventory that instructors can use to help users learn information self-counseling skills and overcome technophobia
  • a research planning process that leads searchers to logical sources on the WWW and a systematic analysis of the results
  • a case study from the University of Texas at Austin that shows how to integrate information literacy skills into traditional services and partnerships
  • USC's use of the Web as an information resource and publishing tool
  • the development of a Web page by a government documents department and a navigational tool developed by a physics laboratory
  • arguments in favor of library media specialists having responsibility for the Internet access needs of schools
  • the responsibility of librarians to train students in lifetime critical thinking skills
  • advice on how librarians in higher education can provide effective Internet instruction to Latino students--taking cultural issues and learning styles into consideration
  • identification and evaluation of Internet resources for test and measurement tools for education and psychology and a selected bibliography listing resources for Internet trainers
