The Gypsy Librarian provides reading notes on a number of articles. The most recent article he writes about is:
Bronshteyn, K. and Baladad, B. (2006) "Librarians as Writing Instructors: Using Paraphrasing Exercises to Teach Beginning Information Literacy Students." Journal of Academic Librarianship, 32 (5), 533-536.
As I think I have said elsewhere, I do some work with students in a couple of modules on synthesis and abstracting, both of which are genuinely difficult to do well. Paraphrasing is also a challenging area and one where I want to do more with students.
