This important volume by noted Australian learning theorist, Christine Bruce, provides a unique perspective on helping students become successful learners in fluid and fast moving information environments. In answering the question “What should we teach and how, so that our students will use information successfully, creatively, and responsibly in their journey as lifelong learners?” Bruce has created a powerful and extensive examination of how information and disciplinary learning can coexist. Dr. Bruce emphasizes simultaneous attention to discipline learning and effective information use. The framework for what Bruce terms “informed learning” will enable professors, teachers, librarians, researchers, and researcher-librarians to work together in a responsive way to help students use information to learn.
