Coming Soon: The Little eLit Book

Starting this month, the Little eLit book, Young Children, New Media, and Libraries, will be released serially here on the blog. This project has been in the works for a while now, with many contributing authors, and we’re very excited to be sharing it with the library world soon.

The first chapter, which provides an introduction to the concept of new media in librarianship for young children, will be available in PDF format on October 15. New chapters will follow on the 15th of every month until early next summer, when we’ll piece the whole thing together in one volume.

So mark your calendars and get ready for the Little eLit book–part guidebook, part collective exploration–as we continue to venture into what it means to be a youth librarian in the twenty-first century.

  1. I’ve been off work for two months and just came across the email announcing this book. I checked my email for Oct. 15th and didn’t see the first installment. Did I miss something? If so, is there any way to have it resent? Thanks.
