In this age of information literacy this vital work documents how libraries have become crucial to the success of both students and the institutions they attend.
This new work from Breivik and Gee addresses the unique challenges of today's information-overloaded culture while responding to the significant changes that have occurred on campuses during the past fifteen years. Chief among these changes are the pervasive use of the Internet, growing community engagement, distance education, the emphasis on more active learning, and the assessment of student learning outcomes. The work is enriched by a series of key-issue statements about topics that have emerged within today's wired society, and by vignettes highlighting best practices that have been extracted from interviews with leaders in education, business, and government.
