Only Connect ... discovery pathways, library explorations and the information adventure

1,017

Published on

Librarians, learning support and academic staff could benefit from knowing more about the pathways that learners take through academic information: how they perceive, model and negotiate the information environment. With a richer understanding of our learners’ individual journeys, we can make our interventions more relevant and more timely; we can structure our courses to allow pathfinding to develop; and we can help our learners to navigate reflectively through the sea of information. We present a range of information discovery journeys, from reflections upon formal search processes to a library fairy story. This book represents the richness of information discovery.

  10. 10. Information literacy is not a fixed set of skills. Information literacy cannot be measured as a percentage or grade. Information literacy is not independent of context.
  11. 11. There is no right or wrong way to be information literate, there are simply ways that work, or don’t work, for an individual in their current context.

  17. 17. ‘Exploring information landscapes and bubbles’ (Burkhardt and Carbery)
  18. 18. In the journey into the unknown, play and learning both require an exceeding of preset boundaries. To cross this threshold is to shift into the unimagined ‘now’ of creativity.

  39. 39. If this source was a sea creature, what would it be like – and why? Would it be grey and with dangerous teeth, because it has no illustrations and uses unfamiliar words? Would it be fat, because it gives you a lot of information on a very specific topic? Would it be puffed up, because it seems a bit pompous and without real point? Would it be curled up, because the information is presented in a roundabout way? ‘The Fishscale of Academicness’ (Gröppel-Wegener and Walton)

  41. 41. “Has this book made you think? Edified you a little (or a lot)? Advanced the idea of information literacy at all?” The answer to all three: a resounding “yes” Manchester New Library Professionals Network http://manchesternlpn.wordpress.com/2013/10/07/only-connect-a-review/

  52. 52. In a way you can imagine the information you get from a particular source as playing cards of the same suit. In a basic Annotated Bibliography, you present your reader with what in Poker would be a series of Straight Flushes – cards of the same suit, in sequence. Just like they came out of the pack. ‘The Winning Hand of Independence’ (Gröppel-Wegener)
