About this title

Synopsis:

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

About the Author:

Susie Andretta is based at the Department of Applied Social Sciences, London Metropolitan University. The author’s expertise in IL originates from research on the implementation of user-education programmes in combination with student-centred learning strategies.
