Connecting with the underland.

Williams, Dorothy


Dorothy Williams


This is a guest editorial for the Journal of Information Literacy. The information literacy world I invite you to explore appears to be a richly-layered one. Maybe it was because I have been reading lately about underlands – hidden layers and deep networks, created by nature and by humankind, beneath our feet in cities and countryside – that I was particularly struck by the shift towards a deeper and contextualised approach to information literacy. Many of the papers in this issue are concerned with understanding and developing information literacy in relation to our multi-layered, everyday existences, the different roles and experiences through which we all engage with information.
