Introduction

The title of this record reflects the evolving conceptualization and names of what began a generation ago as "library orientation". Today, the word "library" -- as in library literacy -- is giving way to "information" in order to encompass the Web. And some institutions and individuals are striving to move beyond "information" -- toward knowledge -- by applying the phrase "critical reasoning skills" to their teaching efforts.
The Library Orientation Series covers it all.
