Call for chapters: Framing Health Care Instruction: An Information Literacy Handbook for the Health Sciences

There is a call for chapters (deadline 22 June 2018) for a new book edited by Lauren M. Young (Samford University, USA) and Elizabeth G. Hinton (University of Mississippi Medical Center): Framing Health Care Instruction: An Information Literacy Handbook for the Health Sciences. This "is an upcoming handbook that will serve as a primer on the ACRL Framework and its application in health sciences information literacy instruction. Through descriptive content and case studies, this book will serve as both a primer for health sciences librarians new to bibliographic instruction and as a source of didactic inspiration for those currently working in the domain. ... This book will discuss information literacy instruction in progressively higher-stakes health sciences populations (undergraduate, graduate, post-graduate, professional) in academic and hospital settings. The needs of specific health sciences disciplines will be addressed, as will varying instructional formats and didactic approaches. Assessment standards relating to information literacy will also be discussed. ... Each Frame-based chapter will be accompanied by four case studies, representing the important work you are doing in this field at your institutions. Case studies will feature information literacy lesson plans that target our identified learning populations, and we are seeking a wide variety of health sciences/medical disciplines (e.g., allopathic and osteopathic medicine, dentistry, nursing, allied health, social work, etc.)."
