    [...] Libraries and Transliteracy (http://librariesandtransliteracy.wordpress.com/) Libraries and Transliteracy is part of the multi-literacy movement and includes resources and discussions on increasing literacy for youth and adults in multiple medias. The authors (there are several) hope to promote literacy awareness, teaching, and learning that covers the spectrum from consumption to creation, and define transliteracy as: “[T]he ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media from signing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks.” A working definition, used by Sue Thomas, is that “Transliteracy is the ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media from signing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks.” For librarians hoping to utilize media resources in their programming, especially those who hope to allow their youth users to participate in creation, this blog is full of new and archived resources in addition to links, and have recently established an ALA interest group. They also provide a transliteracy resource list. [...]

    This is a great resource, thanks for doing it. Don’t know whether this is of interest too, but I’ve been keeping a googledoc of citations for a while – although it’s got rather out of date recently since you librarians all got busy. I can’t keep up with you! Anyway – take a look at http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=d3f2chj_322fcprffdz

    all best
    Sue
