Authors Fiona Hunt and Jane Birks have tackled the 21st century digital information environment to bring you a new collection of library and classroom activities that support both secondary and undergraduate college students’ information literacy skill development and better use of library tools and resources.

All activities are suitable for an ESL environment. In the book’s 20 activities, you’ll find strategies that help students determine their information needs, access and evaluate information, and use and cite that information ethically. Adaptable and easy-to-use exercises focus on the use of keywords, brainstorming, library orientation, search strings, evaluation of information, citation tips, avoiding plagiarism and more. Includes a CD-ROM with all supporting handouts, worksheets, and answer keys. While today’s students may indeed be “Web-savvy,” they are not necessarily information literate. This book will help you teach the strategies and techniques of intelligent information use, engaging students in active, productive explorations of the library and its resources.

"A must acquire for librarians."

--Midwest Book Review

"Provides an engaging and practical approach to teach basic information literacy skills and concepts."
