About this product
- DescriptionDespite new techlogies, people do t always find information with ease. Do people still need help in finding the information they need, and if so, why? What can be made easier with new tools and techniques? Information Services and Digital Literacy is about the role of information services and digital literacies in the age of the social web. This title provides an alternative perspective for understanding information services and digital literacy, and argues that a central problem in the age of the social web and the culture of participation is that we do t kw the premises of how we kw, and how ways of interacting with information affect our actions and their outcomes. Information seeking is always a question of crossing and expanding boundaries between our earlier experiences and the unkwn. We may t yet be well eugh acquainted with the landscape of digital information to understand how we kw, where the boundaries to our kwledge lie, how to cross them, and what consequences our actions may have.
