International students

A recent SCONUL publication which I think can be useful to information literacy specialists too:
Senior, K. et al. (2008) Library services for international students. London: SCONUL.

Includes explanations, examples/brief case studies, advice and a list of "key concepts. Some of the latter are directly relevant to information literacy e.g. "Design information literacy programmes which challenge students to think about their information literacy ability, rather than just learning technical search skills."
Thanks to Moira Bent, one of the co-authors, as I saw this mentioned on her blog.
