Synopsis

Traditional literacy, usually defined as the ability to read print materials, is but one component in a connected series. In an effort to facilitate the concept of connections, this book has been divided into four main sections: The many faces of literacy; the land and people of Iceland; the lessons from Iceland, an examination of the results of 57 interviews with fish factory workers, educators, librarians, community leaders, publishers, and students. The interviews sought the reasons for the remarkable nearly-100% print literacy in Iceland. Numerous tables summarize the interview data; and implications for the future.

Darlene E. Weingand, Professor and Director of Continuing Education Services, School of Library and Information Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison, is author of Library and Information Services and The Organic Public Library. She has written 6 books and 35 journal articles and was a Fulbright Lecturer at the University of Iceland in Spring 1988, teaching library management and public librarianship.
