EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Pathways into Information Literacy and Communities of Practice: Teaching Approaches and Case Studies considers the specific information literacy needs of communities of practice. As such, the book fills a gap in the literature, which has treated information literacy extensively, but has not applied it to the area of communities of practice. Since every community of practice generates, seeks, retrieves, and uses resources and sources related to the cognitive structure being researched or studied, and the tasks being performed, the need arises to undertake studies focused on real user communities, especially at a graduate level. This edited collection presents contributions from an international perspective on this key topic in library and information science. Contributions are arranged into two sections, the first exploring teaching and learning processes, and the second presenting case studies in communities of practice, including, but not limited to, health, research environments, college students, and higher education. Focuses on communities of practice, including health, research, and higher education and their distinct information needs Includes chapters from an international and experienced set of contributors Presents an interdisciplinary perspective on the topic

Cases On Research Support Services In Academic Libraries

Publisher: IGI Global

Pages: 344
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Academic libraries have traditionally had two key functions, to support teaching and to support research. In an evolving and competitive university environment, along with the emergence of various technologies and substantial changes in scientific communication, university management has reached a turning point. Academic libraries are facing a paradigm shift in the role they need to play to achieve the research objectives of universities. Research support services in academic libraries have evolved as a response to these changes. They are heterogeneous, adapt to their university culture, adopt different points of view, take different approaches in their organizational structures, and include a diverse catalog of activities. Having an overview of different experiences will allow libraries to adopt best practices, redefine services, and even establish new management and collaboration models. Cases on Research Support Services in Academic Libraries is a critical scholarly resource that uses case studies to systematize the experiences of research support services in academic libraries for the support of higher education faculty. The cases focus on such items as the role of technology and its impact as well as how these services help to improve the excellence of universities. Featuring a wide range of topics such as library services, data management, and open science, this book is ideal for librarians, academicians, professionals, researchers, and students.

Pathways To Literacy
Author: Trevor Cairney
Publisher: Burns & Oates
Release Date: 1995
Pages: 212
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"This book recognizes that there is no simple way to develop literacy. It begins with the central premise that literacy is not simply a cognitive process; rather, it is a set of social practices that are used in rich sociocultural contexts. Literacy learners come to school with unique social histories that need to be recognized in the programmes devised to facilitate learning. There are many forms of literacy, each with its own specific purposes and contexts in which they are used." "Why is it that school literacy disempowers some, and empowers others? How must schools, teachers and teaching change in order to ensure that literacy can be empowering for all? What types of classroom environments permit children to gain access to the literacy practices which they need to take their place in the world? Addressing these questions provides a refreshingly different look at the many practical classroom strategies and practices necessary to recognize multiple pathways to literacy."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
