Drawing upon the author's on going research into information literacy, Information Literacy Landscapes explores the nature of the phenomenon from a socio-cultural perspective, which offers a more holistic approach to understanding information literacy as a catalyst for learning. This perspective emphasizes the dynamic relationship between learner and environment in the construction of knowledge. The approach underlines the importance of contextuality, through which social, cultural and embodied factors influence formal and informal learning. This book contributes to the understanding of information literacy and its role in formal and informal contexts.

An impressive work that challenges many of the popular ideas of IL and how it needs to be approached...a truly special work that reminds us that our information landscape is very much one of wide skies and broad vistas., Library Review This well researched book provides a logically organised process for readers to understand the complex concept., Australian Academic and Research Libraries This book is well written, contains a wealth of references, and the chapters are clearly signposted... I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to develop a serious understanding of the wider issues surrounding information literacy., Journal of Information Literacy
