This book reviews the role of information literacy (IL) in developing employability skills, personal health management and informal learning from a variety of areas including: information policy issues, information usage and training needs and skills development. Early years education, lifelong learning and the role of IL in relevant organisations, including government departments, skills agencies, and professional bodies will also be considered. With a UK focus, this book also considers the leading role of the US in the development of information literacy policy. Case studies and examples of good practise are included and discussed, drawn primarily from Europe, North America and Australasia, also identified examples from other countries. Looks at value and impact and discusses policymaking and issues for the future.

  • Conveniently brings together a usable text to which people can easily refer to for an overview of a diffuse area
  • No existing book considers this subject area from a UK and European perspective
  • Also aimed at a non-traditional readership including educationalists, lifelong learning activists and those involved with informal learning activities

Review:

"...well organised and presented logically, and the case studies are helpful in understanding current trends...recommended for librarians working in health and public libraries who wish to gain insights into current and future trends in information literacy in the UK, Europe and US."--ALJ Online Reviews,August 1 2014

"With a U.K. focus, this book also looks at the leading role of the U.S. in the development of information literacy policy. Case studies and examples of good practice are included and discussed, drawn primarily from Europe, North America and Australasia; it also identifies examples from other countries."--LIS Trends blog, April 13, 2014

"...They describe the history of information issues in the UK; the formation of information literacy policy; and relevant policy documents from the library and information science profession and elsewhere in the US, Australia, and the UK. They argue that information literacy is important in early childhood education, with examples from the UK and other countries, and explore information literacy activity in various situations: the workplace as compared to higher education..."--ProtoView.com, February 2014
