E-learning is becoming more common in academic institutions as a delivery mechanism for information content.

Increasingly librarians and information managers are directly involved in developing e-content and delivering services to support e-learning. It is vital that information managers appreciate the realities of e-learning and, more importantly, exploit its full potential as an information literacy platform. The contributors of this volume help readers understand how e-learning theory can be translated into practice.

It will also be valuable for new professionals and as a text for advanced library and information science students.
