About this book

eLearning and Digital Publishing will occupy a unique niche in the literature accessed by library and publishing specialists, and by university teachers and planners. It examines the interfaces between the work done by four groups of university staff who have been in the past quite separate from, or only marginally related to, each other—library staff, university teachers, university policy makers, and staff who work in university publishing presses. All four groups are directly and intimately connected with the main functions of universities—the creation, management and dissemination of knowledge in a scholarly and reflective manner.

This book provides a framework which clearly portrays the relationships between information literacy, eLearning and digital publishing. The structure of the book has three main sections: the first has primarily an educational focus, the second a focus on digital publishing, and the third builds on the first two sections to examine overall implications for the growth of knowledge and scholarly communication.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book’s three main parts provide a framework that points out the relationships between information literacy, e-learning, and digital publishing. … I think anyone who wants to deploy modern publishing and learning projects at his or her university will find useful information in this book. … The book will appeal to a range of professionals who work in higher education libraries, university teachers, university policy makers, and staff who work in university publishing presses wishing to understand others experiences." (Patriciu Victor-Valeriu, Computing Reviews, December, 2006)
