  1. Exploring Transliteracy: The New Literacies and Libraries LibraryLinkNJ Bobbi Newman librarianbyday.net @librarianbyday
  2. Evolution of Communication
  3. Acceleration of Communication Technologies
  4. Now that the cost of posting things in a global medium has collapsed, much of what gets posted on any given day is in public but not for the public. - Shirky http://www.flickr.com/photos/fotorita/2031523502
  5. You already have zero privacy. Get over it. - Scott G. McNealy 1999

  7. Enter Transliteracy
  8. Transliteracy is the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media from signing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks. -Thomas, et al
  9. Origins of Transliteracy • 2005 • Transliteracies Research Project • Alan Liu from the Department of English at the University of California at Santa Barbara • “intersections of the humanistic, social, and technological disciplines”
  10. Origins of Transliteracy • 2005 • Sue Thomas • Institute of Creative Technologies at De Montfort University • PART Group (Production and Research in Transliteracy) - > Transliteracy Research Group.
  11. The concept of transliteracy calls for a change of perspective away from the battles over print versus digital, and a move instead towards a unifying ecology not just of media, but of all literacies relevant to reading, writing, interaction and culture, both past and present.” -Thomas et al.
  12. Origins of Libraries and Transliteracy • 2009 • Bobbi Newman • Libraries Need to Focus on Transliteracy
  13. Libraries have focused on literacy, the ability to read, write and interact, for years. People need to be literate in order to be involved in and contribute to society. Times are changing, technologies are evolving rapidly, it is no longer enough to focus on the ability to read and write alone.
  14. Origins of Libraries and Transliteracy • 2010 • Libraries and Transliteracy Project • Tom Ipri • Bobbi Newman • Lane Wilkinson • Gretchen Casserroti

  23. not just about computer-based materials, but about all communication types across time and culture. It does not privilege one above the other but treats all as of equal value and moves between and across them. -Thomas et al
