English abstract

Welcome to the Summer issue of JIL 2009. This is a rather special issue for a number of reasons. First, the journal’s structure has been revised to reflect the multifaceted nature of information literacy and enable the examination of the diverse perspectives of this phenomenon. Secondly, for the first time JIL is hosting a collection of articles that is entirely drawn from the papers presented at the LILAC conference, held at Cardiff University from 30th March to 1st April 2009. And thirdly, on a more personal note, this issue of JIL witnesses my debut as its editor.
