New book from ACRL!

PIL61coverACRL is pleased to announce a new book by Dr. John Budd.  In Framing Library Instruction, Budd addresses the philosophical and practical implications of cognition and information and the practice of library instruction in the light of those implications.

Undergraduate students are faced with innumerable challenges as they enter a world with new and different academic demands. Their success, to a large extent, depends on their being able to navigate and interpret the informational maze. Budd presents a complete examination of the cognitive aspects of students’ perceptions and uses of information, including examples that can be adapted for courses or class sessions. This volume will stimulate conversations about the directions instruction can take in the future.

Framing Library Instruction is #61 in the Publication in Librarianship series and Dr. Budd’s second PIL volume for ACRL.

Framing Library Instruction can be ordered through the ALA Online Store or by calling the ALA Store toll free number: 866-746-7252.
