Alloway Librarian's work advocates Information Literacy.

Alloway Library's Associate Librarian Bill Badke has just published: "A Rationale for Information Literacy as a Credit-Bearing Discipline" in Journal of Information Literacy (UK), 2 no.1 (August 2008).

Badke's article is the most comprehensive attempt to date to provide a rationale for information literacy as a credit-bearing discipline. Here at TWU he has been a strong advocate for the viewpoint that information literacy needs to be viewed as an academic discipline rather than merely a topic for remedial instruction.

Journal of Information Literacy is a British, online, peer-reviewed, open-access publication
