Information Literacy Beyond Library 2.0 - facet publishing

Information Literacy Beyond Library 2.0 - facet publishing | New-Tech Librarian | Scoop.it

This new book picks up where the best-selling Information Literacy meets Library 2.0 left off. In the last three years the information environment has changed dramatically, becoming increasingly dominated by the social and the mobile. This new book asks where we are now, what is the same and what has changed, and, most crucially, how do we as information professionals respond to the new information literacy and become a central part of the revolution itself?

 

Some of the key topics covered are:
• the evolution of ‘online’ into the social web as mainstream
• the use of social media tools in information literacy
• the impact of mobile devices on information literacy delivery
• shifting literacies, such as metaliteracy, transliteracy and media literacy, and their effect on information literacy.

3rd International conference on Elderly and New Technologies | 18-20 April 2012 | New-Tech Librarian | Scoop.it

In today’s knowledge society, the new Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) play a crucial role for the personal development and social order. Acquire, manage, disseminate and understand the information through the use of appropriate technologies is a very important aspect of daily life and social behaviour. We have to enable all citizens, including seniors, to benefit from the positive results generated by the scientific-technical revolution of our time. The difficulties that older people have in the access and use of new Technologies should not generate inequality and increase the risk of exclusion...

Time to broaden our strategy? | New-Tech Librarian | Scoop.it

When we know that school libraries have significant positive impacts on learning, on achievement scores, on reading scores–it is unconscionable to not provide those services to our students. We have to continue to think as strategic planners to help preserve, grow, and evolve the services we provide our students.
