Library User Education contains 42 chapters, which explore the value and impact of collaboration and partnerships in academic library user education programs. This is a highly useful and current text, which covers a range of specific programs, formats, and strategies. Examples of many institutions' information literacy efforts and effective evaluation and assessment methods provide strong models to follow or adapt. The book is divided into ten sections. The first four sections deal with campus-wide strategies, faculty-focused programs, and high tech venues. The next three sections include programs and strategies for library user education and information literacy in different formats-Instruction and Faculty Outreach, Information Literacy, and Web-Based Library Instruction. Two sections address specific audiences-Specialized User Populations and Partnerships with Health Sciences Communities. The book concludes with the section on Program Assessment and Modeling.
