Call for Chapters: Teaching Information Literacy Online

Tom Mackey and Trudi Jacobson are teaming up to edit a new book, Teaching Information Literacy Online. From the announcement...

"We are soliciting chapter proposals for a book entitled Teaching Information Literacy Online, to be published in 2010 by Neal-Schuman Publishers. This book will include chapters co-authored by librarian and faculty teams about successful information literacy initiatives in online learning environments. We are especially interested in information literacy collaborations in fully online modes through distance and open learning as well as blended or hybrid endeavors. We encourage faculty-librarian author teams from multiple disciplines, at the undergraduate and graduate level, in North America and internationally. Our previous books include: Information Literacy Collaborations That Work (2007), Using Technology to Teach Information Literacy (2008), and Collaborative Information Literacy Assessments: Strategies for Evaluating Teaching and Learning (2009)...

Please send proposals of 1-2 pages to Tom Mackey at Tom.Mackey@esc.edu no later than November 20, 2009. Chapter selections will be made and authors notified by December 10, 2009. First drafts of the completed chapters (25-30 pages) will be due on March 1, 2010. Final drafts will be due by May 28, 2010. If you have any questions about proposal ideas or about the book please contact Tom Mackey via email."
