Information Literacy and Cultural Heritage Book Review:

There is a complex and contested terrain of cultural heritage in the library, archive and museum context. Information Literacy and Cultural Heritage explores this landscape and covers perspectives from museums, archives and libraries, highlighting the role of memory and contested history in the collection, description and presentation of cultural heritage. The book argues that the convergence of libraries, archives and museums in digital preservation should be extended to include the development of combined lifelong learning programmes, teaching both information literacy skills and awareness of cultural heritage. This title is structured into seven chapters, covering cultural heritage in the library, archive and museum context; digital information contexts; an overview of information literacy models of stages and processes, as well as models of standards, competencies and performance indicators. The book then examines the role of critical thinking and lifelong learning; proposes a generic model of information literacy and cultural heritage for lifelong learning; offers guidelines for adapting the model to local contexts; and offers a conclusion. Covers cultural heritage in the museums, archives and library context Explores the place of cultural heritage and social issues in the digital information context Reviews existing models of information literacy processes, standards and indicators

Information Literacy Book Review:

Taking an international approach, this book explores two main models of Information Literacy or IL: the SCONUL (Society of College, National and University Libraries) Seven Pillars of Information Skills and the IL competencies identified by the ALA (American Library Association). Practical examples for the development of IL skills identified by these models are illustrated using printed and web-based resources. The process of integrating IL provision within a programme of study is outlined to illustrate two strategies underpinning this integration at generic-skills level, the ‘plug & play’ approach, and at subject-specific level, the ‘research skills approach’. A range of diagnostic and assessment methods, to monitor the iterative process of IL skills development, are also presented within these frameworks. Explores practical applications of two major IL models Explores strategies to integrate IL provision in a multi-disciplinary environment Illustrates the developments of independent learning skills through examples taken from different levels of provision at course level and from different levels of competences at user level

Inormation Literacy Education in Japanese Libraries for Lifelong Learning Book Review:

Basic'library'skills'and?Information Technology skills'are'foundations'of'information'literacy'competences. Information literacy is also essential for everybody to continue lifelong learning independently. In this sophisticated information society, it becomes more serious that an information gap between library users with information literacy and those without information literacy is increasingly expanded by the spread of the Internet in recent years. Library use education, in all kinds of libraries, is necessary for every library user to improve one's own information literacy and make use of information resources. Many different kinds of libraries, such as school libraries, public libraries and academic libraries, carry out information literacy education and library use education for library users to perform their own lifelong learning in Japan. This book "Information Literacy Education in Japanese Libraries for Lifelong Learning" clarifies the issues of information literacy education in school libraries, public libraries and academic libraries from a viewpoint of lifelong learning for every library user. For example, the main issues in school libraries in Japan are to create their own school library websites, to provide meaningful and appropriate contents for library users, and to provide user-friendly Web-OPAC for children in their own school library websites. On the other hand, in public libraries in Japan, the main issues concerning children's web pages and young adult web pages in public library websites are: to provide adequate web content especially for library use education toward children and young adults; to improve the usability of web contents; and to provide Web-OPAC for children, which is different from Web-OPAC for adults. Meanwhile, the main issues in Japanese academic libraries are to have a variety of educational content, as well as to execute more advanced library use education far beyond library orientations. Also, it is important for academic libraries to make use of Computer-Assisted Instruction for library use education in order for every library user with to learn different content at their own pace. This book describes unique and important studies of information literacy education concerning school libraries, public libraries, and academic libraries in both Japan and the USA. Also, this book is of great significance in regards to finding the essential guidelines for library use education and information literacy education. This book will be of great interest to undergraduate students, graduate students, researchers, and librarians in Library and Information Science.

Teaching Information Literacy in Higher Education Book Review:

Why do we teach information literacy? This book argues that the main purpose of information literacy teaching in higher education is to enhance student learning. With the impact of new technologies, a proliferation of information sources and a change in the student demography, information literacy has become increasingly important in academia. Also, students that know how to learn have a better chance of adapting their learning strategies to the demands of higher education, and thus completing their degree. The authors discuss the various aspects of how academic integrity and information literacy are linked to learning, and provide examples on how our theories can be put into practice. The book also provides insight on the normative side of higher education, namely academic formation and the personal development process of students. The cognitive aspects of the transition to higher education, including learning strategies and critical thinking, are explored; and finally the book asks how information literacy teaching in higher education might be improved to help students meet contemporary challenges. Presents critical thinking and learning strategies as a basic foundation for information literacy Covers information literacy as a way into deep learning/higher order thinking Provides self-regulation, motivation, and self-respect as tools in learning Emphasizes the interdependence of learning, academic integrity, critical thinking, and information literacy A practical guide to teaching information literacy based on an increased focus on the learning process, an essential for Information literacy graduate students and higher education teaching staff in relevant fields
