Summer issue of the Journal of Information Literacy

We are pleased to announce that the Summer issue 2009 of the Journal of Information Literacy has been published and is available at:

This is the first issue of JIL that hosts a collection of articles drawn entirely from the papers presented at the LILAC conference this year. The journal has also been restructured as explained in the editorial "Bridging the gap between theory, research and practice of information literacy" and includes two new features the IL projects and the Conference corner. The new structure is in line with JIL's aim of investigating the multifaceted nature of information literacy to address the interests of diverse IL communities of practice.
