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. This collection provides an overview of Library 2.0 tools and technologies for information literacy practitioners.
Over the years the information environment has changed dramatically, becoming increasingly dominated by the social and the mobile. This book asks where we are now, what is same and what has changed, and, most crucially, how do we as professionals respond to the new information literacy and become a central part of the revolution itself?
Digital Literacy Unpacked demonstrates the importance of digital literacy in all areas of life, the centrality of critical thinking (a key element of both digital and information literacy), and the essential role of library and information professionals in leading digital literacy developments.
