Little eLit book: Evaluating New Media

Over the last year, many of us involved with Little eLit have been working on a book called Young Children, New Media, and Libraries: A Guide for Incorporating New Media into Library Collections, Services, and Programs for Families and Children Ages 0-5. It’s not just a book, but a thoroughly researched tool for librarians who are becoming media mentors, supporting families and fostering literacy with a variety of media. Each month a new chapter is being released online and once all of the chapters have been released they will be compiled in a pdf document. This month the chapter Evaluating New Media, written by myself and Carisa Kluver of Digital Storytime and the The Digital Media Diet, has been released. We hope it will be useful for both those using new media for the first time and seasoned new media users alike. Check out the book and let us know what you think!
