  • Description

In this book, twenty information literacy experts, including Michael Eisenberg, Virginia Walter, and Lesley Farmer, explore various techniques and contribute perspectives on information literacy programs in educational environments from kindergarten through higher education, including public libraries. The result is an indispensable volume that provides an integrated, comprehensible approach for creating a successful, sustained program. The book is divided into chapters, each focusing on one of the 17 components that make up what authors Curzon and Lampert identify as the “information literacy wheel”. Each section of the wheel -- planning, teaching models, collaboration, marketing, assessment, and more -- undergoes in-depth analysis by one of the information literacy professionals. Here is a key resource, packed with compelling analyses and real-world examples from the experts themselves, for developing an effective, multi-dimensional information literacy program in the 21st century.
