New articles: Reddit; Point-of-Need teaching; Librarians as developers; PIL scale; Misinformation

The latest issue of the open access journal Communications in Information Literacy has been published (Volume 13, Issue 2, 2019). The articles are:
- Reddit as an Analogy for Scholarly Publishing and the Constructed, Contextual Nature of Authority by Anna M. White
- Conceptual and Procedural Knowledge: A Framework for Analyzing Point-of-Need Information Literacy Instruction by Amy VanScoy
- Academic Librarians’ Experiences as Faculty Developers: A Phenomenographic Study by Michael Flierl, Clarence Maybee, and Rachel Fundator (the four categories they discovered were: Connector – connects instructors to pedagogic or technology experts; Facilitator – guides instructors through course design; Colleague – nurtures mutually beneficial relationship with instructors; Developer – develops instructors to transform their approach to teaching)
- Initial Development of the Perception of Information Literacy Scale (PILS) by Matthew Doyle, Britt Foster, and Mariya A. Yukhymenko-Lescroart (they say they are responding to "a lack of valid and reliable Framework-based scales for assessing students’ knowledge practices and dispositions")
- From Syndication to Misinformation: How Undergraduate Students Engage with and Evaluate Digital News by Cara Evanson and James Sponsel
