Announcement: Mapping as a tool for developing information literacy

Written by a leading researcher in the field, this book investigates how teachers and learners can use mapping in developing their ability to make informed judgements about information, in specific places and times.

The book presents a history of mapping as a means of representing the world, ranging from the work of medieval mapmakers to the 21st century.
