In six chapters, Visual Literacy for Libraries explores the seven ACRL "Visual Literacy Competency Standards" through a series of exploratory questions and hands-on activities. As the first guide of its kind, this volume is a significant resource and valuable addition to the literature on library instruction and visual literacy. The book is highly organized and clearly written, easily accommodating cover-to-cover readers as well as those jumping in to focus on a specific topic.
