2005 The Transliteracies Project “Text has historically existed as a negotiation betweenmedia, including oral, written,print, visual, and… electronic media.” (Liu 2006) http://www.flickr.com/photos/networkcultures/57391
2005 The Transliteracies Project Studying “the zone of negotiation…by which the older dialogue among print, writing, orality, and audiovisual media…entersinto new relations with digital media.” (Liu 2006)
2007 PART: Production and Research in TransliteracyThe ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media. (Thomas, et al., 2007) http://www.flickr.com/photos/mak61/4647008124/
2007 PART: Production and Research in Transliteracy “Transliteracy is an umbrellaterm encompassing different literacies and multiple communication channels.” (Andretta 2009)
2010 Libraries and Transliteracy “Transliteracy began as a descriptive concept,designed to understand how people navigate their way across various media.” (Newman 2011) http://www.flickr.com/photos/mlibrarianus/4521632001/
2010 Libraries and Transliteracy “[It is] understanding the ways various means of communication interact and understanding…the skills necessary to moveeffortlessly from one medium to another.” (Ipri 2010)

The birth of the web made it necessary forlibrarians to shift more towards teaching searchstrategies and evaluation of sources. The tool-focused “bibliographic instruction” approach waslater replaced by the skill-focused “informationliteracy” approach. http://www.flickr.com/photos/ricin/522589066Meredith FarkasAmerican Libraries Magazine11/01/2011http://americanlibrariesmagazine.org/columns/practice/information-literacy-20
