Information Literacy articles in Journal of Library and Information Services in Distance Learning

The Journal of Library and Information Services in Distance Learning is a priced journal (which I don't have access to) which often seems to include articles relevant to information literacy. Currently the latest issue is volume 8 (issues 3/4, http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/wlis20/8/3-4#.VLVrFnslSZM) which is part 1 of the Sixteenth Distance Library Services Conference Proceedings. Articles include:
