The book's collection of edited chapters can be read and enjoyed individually or as a whole. The editors have done an excellent job of highlighting instruction examples and case studies that should appeal to librarians with interest in ideas, approaches, and models for instructional engagement that may span one-shot sessions through complete academic courses.... This very valuable and informative book reflects this interesting time of transition in library information literacy instruction, where within different timeframes, and to varying degrees, many librarians are engaging and experimenting with the Framework in their current instructional programs. Like the Framework, this book will challenge librarians to give fresh consideration to many of their current instructional practices. * Communications in Information Literacy * [This] is a volume I am sure to refer to in the future as my patrons' ILI needs change. Showing ACRL's 2015 Framework through real-life examples not only provides readers an opportunity to reflect on the status of their current programs, but also provides information on the ways in which they might incorporate the six frame for patrons and staff alike. This book is recommended for any library that supports any level of research. * Journal of the Medical Library Association * The New Information Literacy Instruction: Best Practices builds on this culture of sharing by presenting 13 well-written and informative case studies that represent `best practices in information literacy instruction'.... This combination of best practices that are linked to nationally recognized standards will be a great asset to librarians who are struggling to update their own information literacy practice during this time of transition to the new Framework.... According to the editors, the goal of The New Information Literacy Instruction was to `aid librarians in creating lessons and programs of their own' by presenting several case studies that highlight effective IL practices. Based on the quality of the chapters, it is clear that they have succeeded. Each one provides a unique perspective on different IL challenges and librarians are encouraged to read each one.... The reason why is because each one provides its own practical advice, battle-tested resources, and proven IL strategies that anyone can borrow and adapt to fit their own circumstances. As a result, The New Information Literacy Instruction should become a frequently consulted resource for many instructional librarians. * Medical Reference Services Quarterly * The New Information Literacy Instruction: Best Practices, edited by Pat Ragains and M. Sandra Wood, is a valuable addition to instructional practices in all kinds of libraries, in particular academic libraries. The publication of this work is timely in light of the Association of College & Research Libraries recently revised Information Literacy Framework, which translates professional standards into more practical application. Each chapter addresses specific areas of library instruction, including discipline-specific to special literacies, all within the context of our professional information literacy guidelines. Librarians can adapt the examples provided or use them as a springboard for creating their own best practices in their liaison areas or specific areas of focus for providing information literacy instruction. -- Mary Anne Hansen, Professor/Research Commons Librarian, and Subject Librarian for Education, Health & Human Development, Nursing, and Psychology at Montana State University The New Information Literacy Instruction: Best Practices is one of those smart and uncommon volumes that genuinely advances the field. Editors Ragains and Wood have assembled a valuable collection of essays from authors who represent the new guard of information literacy practitioners and innovators. -- Christopher Hollister, Education Librarian, University at Buffalo, SUNY
