Yet more papers

Libri has a special issue from the i3 conference last year. Libri makes papers open access after one year, but at the moment these articles are for subscribers only: see http://www.librijournal.org/
- Carol Kuhlthau: From Information to Meaning: Confronting Challenges of the Twenty-first Century
- Stefan Ek and Gunilla Widen-Wulff: Information Mastering, Perceived Health and Societal Status: An Empirical Study of the Finnish Population
- Louise Limberg et al: What Matters? Shaping Meaningful Learning through Teaching Information Literacy
- Anna Lundh and Louise Limberg: Information Practices in Elementary School
- David Streatfield and Sharon Markless: Evaluating the Impact of Information Literacy in Higher Education: Progress and Prospects
- Helen Partridge et al: Community Information Literacy: Developing an Australian Research Agenda
- Lynn Connaway et al: Sense-Making and Synchronicity: Information-Seeking Behaviors of Millennials and Baby Boomers

Thanks also to Jacqui Weetman DaCosta who alerted the lis-infoliteracy list that issue 114 (Summer 2008) of New Directions for Teaching and Learning is devoted to information literacy. The journal home page is at: http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/

Jacqui also mentioned 2 new books:
Cook, D. and Sittler, R. (eds) Practical pedagogy for library instructors: 17 innovative strategies to improve student learning. Chicago: ACRL, 2008
Cox, C.N. and Lindsay, E.B. (eds) Information literacy instruction handbook. Chicago: ACRL, 2008.
I think that they are also the publishers of Christine Bruce's new book which comes out later this year.
