Transforming Information Literacy Programs: Intersecting Frontiers of Self, Library Culture, and Campus Community, # 64 in the ACRL Publications in Librarianship series, brings together a broad array of issues and themes that academic instruction librarians must manage including the intellectual, psychological, cultural, definitional and structural issues that are present in higher education environments.  Comprised of four sections, Outlining Current Boundaries, Frontiers of Self, Fortifying Institutional Partnerships, and Charting Next Steps, Transforming Information Literacy Programs offers perspectives and solutions from twelve authors with diverse points of view. Armed with a new understanding of the complex frontiers of self, library culture, and campus communities, instruction librarians can engage in deeper conversations about the issues they face as well as begin vital and exciting initiatives to shape the future of information literacy programs.
