Please check out my new and expanded version of looking at libraries as sponsors of literacy, or more specifically, transliteracy.  This talk is being delivered today, April 13,  at the Alabama Library Association YASRT/CSLD Preconference.  This presentation is rooted in my previous studies (you can see my papers and readings from 2005 on my Slideshare page under “documents”) in the work of Dr. Deborah Brandt.  I am very interested in replicating her ethnographic study with a focus on an expanded definition of literacy.
