Cahoy publishes articles on information literacy

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Librarian Ellysa Cahoy has recently published a number of articles that add to the growing body of knowledge on information literacy. Cahoy, an education and behavioral sciences librarian and assistant director in the Pennsylvania Center for the Book, has two articles published in the latest issue of Communications in Information Literacy, an open-access, independent, peer-reviewed journal on information literacy in institutions of higher education. This is a special issue focused on "Rethinking the Standards.”

Her first article is titled "Affective Learning and  Personal Information Management: Essential Components of Information Literacy" and is available online.

The other article is a transcript of a session Cahoy participated in with Trudi Jacobson and Craig Gibson at the Pennsylvania Information Literacy Summit that was held in summer 2013. The article is titled "Moving Forward: A Discussion on the Revision of the ACRL Information Literacy Standards for Higher Education" and can be read online.

In addition, LOEX Quarterly, a self-supporting, nonprofit educational clearinghouse for library instruction and information literacy information, published an interview with Cahoy discussing affective information literacy, personal archiving and the forthcoming revision of the ACRL information literacy standards.
