>> Watch the archived webinar with foreword author, Emma Coonan, Information Skills Librarian of University of East Anglia, Norwich, England, U.K., contributed the foreword, “Towards a constructive unbalancing: The reflective turn in information literacy.” She writes, “If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a community of practice to maintain a reflective information literacy practitioner: a librarian capable of embracing uncertainty and of turning an unfearing questioning gaze on their own identity and entitlement.”
