The video below was made in 2007, the same year the term Transliteracy was coined by Production and Research in Transliteracy (PART). It was created by Dr. Michael Wesch to show the way we find, house, and share information was changing.
Now in 2010, the video and its content are still relevant This video really shows how the transliterate individual can do so much with the access to information we now have. In addition to this, the video shows a clear need to educate people on how to transverse this now limitless sea of information. I think that this is where Participatory Librarianship and Transliteracy go hand in hand. We need to understand how to help or patrons, students, friends, family, and colleagues become cognizant and comfortable with the tools they will need to communicate and collaborate with others.
