Book reviewers wanted for Journal of Information Literacy

The Journal of Information Literacy is currently seeking two volunteers to review two new books. Both would probably suit practitioners rather than academics:

*         https://www.alastore.ala.org/content/leveraging-wikipedia-connecting-communities-knowledge

*         https://www.alastore.ala.org/content/framing-information-literacy-pil73-teaching-grounded-theory-pedagogy-and-practice-6-volume

Book reviews are usually 750-1,000 words long and submission deadlines for these reviews will be the end of September this year.

If you would like to volunteer please send a one sentence statement explaining your role and interests by 12 noon on Friday 29th June to Ian Hunter, JIL book reviews editor, and he will match the books to the most suitable volunteers. Successful reviewers get to keep the books.
