Facet Publishing: Academic Publishing Supporting Information Literacy

As LILAC 2024 approaches, we have invited the event sponsors to write a guest post and tell us about their contribution to information literacy. Our full list of LILAC sponsors can be seen at this link.

In 2018, CILIP provided a concise yet comprehensive definition of Information Literacy as “the ability to think critically and make balanced judgments about any information we find and use. It empowers us as citizens to reach and express informed views and to engage fully with society.”

The landscape of Information Literacy is dynamic, constantly evolving with the ever-changing nature of information dissemination and consumption. In order to support this dynamic field, quality content, resources and ongoing, innovative research are essential.

As the book publishing arm of CILIP, Facet Publishing is committed to serving library, information, education and heritage professionals worldwide. One of our key priorities is to support CILIPs mission to promote education, literacy and prosperity for all by raising standards in libraries, information and knowledge management. We achieve this by working with our authors and editors to produce the highest quality, peer reviewed content that is both informative and impactful.

By offering academic books that are both theoretically sound and applicable in real-world contexts, Facet aims to equip readers with the tools and knowledge needed to thrive in their respective fields. At the same time, our practical guides deliver best practice CPD and educational resources to broaden our own skillsets and help support students, service users and colleagues.

We recognise the importance of diversity and inclusion in enriching the discourse surrounding Information Literacy. By actively seeking out diverse voices and perspectives, we strive to offer a comprehensive representation of the field, fostering a more inclusive community of practitioners and researchers. But our support of the Information Literacy community extends beyond the publication of books. Through our commitment to the dissemination of knowledge, we serve to assist innovation and advancement in the field, empowering individuals to navigate the complexities of the information age with confidence and clarity.

The field of Information Literacy continually evolves, requiring a steadfast dedication to high-quality resources and innovative research. As a publisher we are committed to advancing the field by delivering practical, impactful publications that empower professionals and to serve as a hub for researchers, practitioners, and students alike.
