In this new book, twelve experts share their wisdom and guidance on harnessing the best new Web 2.0 tools to address information literacy. Divided into four parts and twelve chapters, the book begins with an overview of Web 2.0 tools, such as blogs, wikis, podcasts, and how students and other library patrons use these tools. The book continues with a focus on how Web 2.0 tools impact information literacy in three different arenas: LIS students, school libraries, and public libraries. Finally, the book discusses and analyzes specific tools and how libraries may wish to integrate them into their services: blogs, Wikipedia, RSS feeds, podcasting, YouTube, and more.

From Booklist:

Written by a panel of international experts, this work begins by introducing tools of Library 2.0 for information literacy (IL). The second part addresses implications for IL learning for both future librarians and school and public libraries. The third part focuses on specific applications such as blogs, Wikipedia, RSS feeds, podcasting, tags, Flickr, YouTube, and Google. The concluding part addresses digital games and summarizes the work. An index enables readers to find topics of interest to them and related areas within other chapters. Some chapters include an extensive bibliography of print and online resources, while others include only references cited. Screen captures provide visuals, although more of these would be appreciated. The global coverage of this work encourages a recommendation for any library wishing to examine the use of Web 2.0  technologies for IL and to reach out to patrons in general. --Sara Marcus

Book Description Facet Publishing, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Web 2.0 technologies have been seen by many information professionals as critical to the future development of library services. This has led to the use of the term Library 2.0 to denote the kind of service that is envisaged. There has been considerable debate about what Library 2.0 might encompass, but, in the context of information literacy, it can be described as the application of interactive, collaborative, and multimedia technologies to web-based library services and collections. These developments challenge librarians involved in information literacy with more complex and diverse web content, a range of exciting new tools with which to teach, and a steep learning curve to adjust to the constant change of the Web 2.0 world. This edited collection from an international team of experts provides a practically-based overview of emerging Library 2.0 tools and technologies for information literacy practitioners; addresses the impact of the adoption of these technologies on information literacy teaching; provides case study exemplars for practitioners to help inform their practice; and examines the implications of Library 2.0 for the training of information literacy professionals. Key topics include: School Library 2.0: new skills and knowledge for the futureinformation literacy, Web 2.0 and public librariesthe blog as an assessment toolusing Wikipedia to eavesdrop on the scholarly conversationinformation literacy and RSS feedslibrary instruction on the go: podcastingsparking Flickrs of insight into controlled vocabularies and subject searchingjoining the YouTube conversation to teach information literacygoing beyond Googleteaching information literacy through digital games. Readership: This book will be essential reading for all library and information practitioners and policy makers with responsibility for developing and delivering information literacy programmes to their users. It will also be of great interest to students of library and information studies. Seller Inventory # AA69781856046374
