Journal of information literacy is launched!

Today saw the launch of volume 1 issue 1 of the Journal of Information Literacy, a new open-access (free on the web!) journal that focuses on all aspects of information literacy. I am the Editor and here is my Editorial. It accepts refereed articles and "articles from practice" (shorter articles from practitioners discussing their experiences, often experiences of teaching information literacy). There are also three book reviews in the first issue and the articles are as follows (the first two are refereed):

An evaluation of an information literacy training initiative at the University of Dar es Salaam. By E. Wema and M. Hepworth.
Using online collaborative learning to enhance information literacy delivery in a Level 1 module: an evaluation. By G. Walton, J. Barker, M. Hepworth, and D. Stephens.
