Current Awareness

Journals and listservs can help educate stakeholders in higher-education information literacy and maintain awareness of issues like pedagogy and standards in library instruction.  Thanks to Jennifer Jarson of Muehlenberg College for compiling this list and for suggesting other resources used in this guide in her College & Research Libraries News article on resources in IL and IL instruction in higher education (C&RLN 71.10 (2010):534-538).
