Coleman, Jason; Pankl, Lis – Communications in Information Literacy, 2020
In the chapter we wrote 10 years ago for "Critical Library Instruction: Theories and Methods" we asked instructors to free themselves from the stifling heritage of positivism that privileged tools and instrumentality above meaning.

Leung, Sofia Y.; López-McKnight, Jorge R. – Communications in Information Literacy, 2020
"Critical Library Instruction: Theories and Methods" dangerously lacked a centering, and critique, of white supremacy, as a structure of domination; we see the continuation of that active avoidance, or a progress approach through liberal or multicultural frameworks that do not precisely identify roots of racialized oppression, in…

Smith, Dolsy – Communications in Information Literacy, 2020
This piece situates the project of critique in relation to the idea of library instruction as labor and the library as an organization. If the laborer can come to reflect on the conditions of their labor, thereby achieving a measure of autonomy even at the grindstone, it's also possible that the critical subject can be induced or coerced to labor…

Kennedy, Heather R.; Gruber, Anne Marie H. – Communications in Information Literacy, 2020
It is well demonstrated that service-learning positively impacts a variety of student outcomes.

Additionally, little research has connected information literacy instruction explicitly with outcomes in…

Elmwood, Victoria – Communications in Information Literacy, 2020
A new approach to teaching web source evaluation is necessary for an internet that is increasingly littered with sources of questionable merit and motivation. Initially pioneered by K-12 educational specialists, the journalistic model avoids the cognitive duality of the checklist and a reliance on opaque terms and concepts. Instead, it recommends…
