From a traditional role of information gatekeepers, librarians have been challenged to become pedagogues who teach and counsel students in information literacy.

The aim of this book is to professionalise the educational role of academic libraries.

It helps information professionals design and carry out information literacy education programmes.

The book puts forward a process-oriented approach to information literacy user education.

Practical ways are outlined in which librarians' pedagogical involvement in higher education can be enhanced.

By applying two general didactic models, the book meets the information professionals' needs to make theoretically founded and independent choices in her teaching and supervisory practices as well as critically reflecting on them.

Examples of best and less good practice are drawn upon to provide scenarios for reflection which can inspire and enrich the information professional's work.
