Outstanding Paper Award for Dr. Grettano and Prof. Witek

“Teaching metaliteracy: a new paradigm in action” published in Reference Services Review has been selected by the journal’s editorial team as the Outstanding Paper in the 2015 Emerald Literati Network Awards for Excellence.

In the co-authored article, Witek and Grettano posit that rhetorical and information literacy practices and attitudes are evolving through the use of social media. Through research conducted in their co-taught WRTG 224: Rhetoric & Social Media course, they argue that information now comes to users; information recall and attribution are now social; evaluation is now social; and information is now open.

The article is available for free for a year on the journal’s website.

“Teaching metaliteracy” previously was recognized by the Library Instruction Round Table of the American Library Association as one of the LIRT Top 20 2014 Library Instruction and Information Literacy articles. Click here to read that blog post.
