Another Swedish information literacy book

In a comment below, Ola Pilerot mentions another new information literacy book in Swedish, and now has some extra information.

Hedman, J., & Lundh, A. (eds.) (2009). Informationskompetenser: om lärande i informationspraktiker och informationssökning i lärandepraktiker. [Information literacies: on learning in information practices and information seeking in learning practices]. Stockholm: Carlsson Bokforlag. See (in Swedish)

"This book is composed of 12 chapters presenting and discussing theoretical perspectives and empirical studies of information literacy, related to all educational levels from elementary school to college and to learning information practice in occupational life. Different aspects of information literacy including the mediation of meaning andmaterial aspects are included. Implications for further research as well as for information literacy education are recurring topics throughout the book. All researchers within the BIKT programme have contributed one or more chapters. A few authors from outside the BIKTgroup have been invited to contribute to this volume." (taken from here)
