The information literacy cookbook : ingredients, recipes and tips for success
Part of the Chandos information professional series series
This book, aimed at an international audience, provides an overview of information literacy (IL) in practice; what it is, why it's become so important in the library profession and demonstrates how librarians can cultivate a better understanding of IL in their own organisations.
It uses the 'Cookbook' theme throughout to provide a more informal approach, which will appeal to practitioners, and also reflects the need to provide guidance in the form of recipes, tips for success, regional variations, and possible substitutions if ingredients aren't available.
This approach makes it easy to read and highly valuable for the busy information professional.
It includes an overview of information literacy in higher education, the schools sector, public libraries, the health service and the commercial sector.
It also includes contributions from international authors.
