Another review of Information services and digital literacy

Submitted by Isto Huvila on Thu, 03/13/2014 - 07:18

I just bumped into another review of my book Information services and digital literacy: In search of the boundaries of knowing (Chandos, 2012) I had somehow missed earlier in the Journal of Information Literacy. Jane Mansfield makes sharp remarks on the book and notes, for instance, that

It provides many original viewpoints on digital literacy and the boundaries of information and knowing and is obviously the product of much committed research. 

It is an excellent text for those wishing to research the history and theories of digital literacy.

At the same she warns that the book is not exactly a text for practitioners seeking for direct advice for their daily troubles.

The full citation of the review is Mansfield, J. 2013. Book Review of Huvila, I. 2012. Information services and digital literacy: in search of the boundaries of knowing. Oxford: Chandos. Journal of Information Literacy, 7(1), pp.107-108 and the text is freely available at http://dx.doi.org/10.11645/7.1.1823
