There is a new issue of Library Trends out which might be of particular interest to information literacies researchers, as the theme is Information Literacy Beyond the Academy, Part I: Towards Policy Formulation. A few network co-ordinators have articles in the issue, including Ola Pilerot, Jenny Lindberg and Annemaree Lloyd. The table of contents can be reached at:

Another themed issue (2/3 20011) is found in Danish Library Research which focuses their newest issue on Information literacies. This issue is edited by Trine Schreiber and contains an article by her as well as by other network co-ordinators (Olof Sundin, Helena Francke, Louise Limberg, Johanna Rivano Eckerdal). Most of the articles are in Danish, but a couple are in English. Enjoy!
