Communities as Necessity in Information Literacy Development: Challenging the Standards
Harris, Benjamin R.
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v34 n3 p248-255 May 2008
Contemporary standards suggest that information literate activity is a solitary process. As a corrective, research and pedagogical theories related to ''learning communities'' and ''communities of practice'' have become valuable sites of inquiry for librarians. The author provides strategies for making community a topic of instruction. (Contains 3 tables.)
