Lane Wilkinson reorganizes his “Taxonomy of Literacies” and makes some important distinctions between the communicative and evaluative. The “money quote” is this: “Transliteracy is about containers. Information literacy is about content.”
After a long hiatus and busy summer consumed with library renovations, staff changes, and other sundry projects, I finally have some time to start blogging again. I’m going to try and use the blog as more of a “professional stream of consciousness” and write more often about my current research, the state of the profession, and where I see library and information science heading. There will, of course, be forays into technology, diversity, and higher education in general — three more areas of professional interest.
Thanks for sticking with me, those of you who subscribe. I promise I’ll be a little more forthcoming in the future.
