Mapping InformationLandscapes presents the first in-depth study of the educationalimplications of the idea of information literacy as 'the capacity to map andnavigate an information landscape'. Written by a leading researcher in thefield, it investigates how teachers and learners can use mapping in developingtheir ability to make informed judgements about information, in specific placesand times. Central to the argument is the notion that the geographicaland information landscapes are indivisible, and the techniques we use tonavigate each are essentially the same. The book presents a history of mappingas a means of representing the world, ranging from the work of medievalmapmakers to the 21st century. Concept and mind mapping are explored, andfinally, the notion of discursive mapping: the dialogic process, regardless ofwhether a graphical map is an outcome. The theoretical framework of the book weaves together thework of authors including Annemaree Lloyd, Christine Bruce, practice theoristssuch as Theodore Schatzki and the critical geography of David Harvey, an authorwhose work has not previously been applied to the study of information literacy.The book concludes that keeping information landscapessustainable and navigable requires attention to how equipment is used to mapand organise those landscapes. How we collectively think about and solveproblems in the present time inscribes maps and positions them as resources inwhatever landscapes we will draw on in the future.Information literacy educators, whether in libraries, other HE courses, high schools or the workplace, will benefit by learning about how mapping - implicitly and explicitly - can be used as a method of teaching IL. The book will also be useful reading for academics and researchers of information literacy and students of library and information science.

Bibliotekernes beskrivelse This is the first book to study how the political content of information literacy arises from the way it has become defined and is taught. It introduces new methods for research into the development of IL in learners and explores the implications of this research for the design of IL teaching, both in formal educational settings and in workplaces.
