Information Services and Digital Literacy: In Search of the
Boundaries of Knowing
Presenting a new approach for understanding how information services help and hinder people in becoming informed, Huvila scrutinizes the role of information services and digital literacies in the age of the social web. He argues that a central problem in the age of the social web and the culture of participation is that we do not know the premises of how we know, and in this book he closely examines the ways that interacting with information affects people's actions.
Huvila's observations on how we know, where the boundaries to our knowledge lie, how to cross them, and what consequences our actions may have will stimulate researchers, practitioners, and LIS students alike.
