September FE library update
Posted by andrewey on September 30, 2008
There were a couple of interesting articles on Web 2.0 in academic libraries published this month:
Sarah Cohen, ‘Taking 2.0 to the faculty‘, C&RL News, September 2008 – about persuading academic staff of the educational value of Web 2.0 tools.
Karen Markey et al, ‘The effectiveness of a web-based board game for teaching undergraduate students information literacy concepts and skills‘, D-Lib Magazine, Vol 14 (9/10) Sept/Oct 2008.
TechDis have published a ‘Guide to obtaining textbooks in alternative formats‘ – there is also a database of publisher contacts to obtain such titles.
Some useful sources of information on information skills delivery:
Journal of Information Literacy – full text is freely available, some useful book reviews in the current issue
ALISS (Association of Library & Information Professionals in the Social Sciences) – includes some good links on delivering information skills
