Does OSLIS have information literacy ebooks?

Yes, 25 ebooks about information literacy are now available on OSLIS. Some of the titles are aimed at upper elementary students, like Getting Around Online<http://cherrylakepublishing.com/shop/show/10598>, and others at middle schoolers and a bit older, like Write It Down<http://cherrylakepublishing.com/shop/show/10352> (about note taking). In some cases, a book is appropriate for either audience or for more than one step of the research process.

Where do I find the ebooks?
The ebooks are linked in the Resources box for the relevant research sub-step in the Learn to Research section of OSLIS. For example, elementary folks can click on Learn to Research<http://elementary.oslis.org/learn-to-research>, any step (maybe Plan<http://elementary.oslis.org/learn-to-research/plan>), and any sub-step (maybe Create My Questions<http://elementary.oslis.org/learn-to-research/plan/plan-form-guiding-questions-wp>). For a secondary audience, click on Learn to Research<http://secondary.oslis.org/learn-to-research>, any step (maybe Define<http://secondary.oslis.org/learn-to-research/define>), and any sub-step (maybe Define Your Project Parameters<http://secondary.oslis.org/learn-to-research/define/define-your-project-parameters>). Note that there are a few sub-steps with no corresponding ebooks.

Librarians and teachers can find a master list, sorted by step of the research process, by scrolling to the very bottom of the elementary educator<http://elementary.educator.oslis.org/learn-to-research> and secondary educator<http://secondary.educator.oslis.org/learn-to-research> versions of the Learn to Research page.

How do I access the ebooks?
Everyone in the Oregon K12 community shares the same login. Ask me for it if you want to promote the ebooks with students and educators in your library.

The OSLIS bookmark has been updated to include a space for the information literacy ebooks login: http://oslis.org/oslissupport/oslis-bookmarks/files.

Who paid for the ebooks?
OSLIS, and therefore the purchase of these ebooks, is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services<http://www.imls.gov/> through the Library Services and Technology Act<http://www.imls.gov/programs/default.aspx>, administered by the Oregon State Library<http://www.oregon.gov/osl/LD/Pages/lsta.aspx>. The OSLIS committee<http://oslis.org/oslissupport/aboutoslis/osliscommittee> is thankful for the support and excited to share these great new resources!
