An annotated bibliography
Authors: Centre for Literacy of Quebec
This bibliography was compiled for The Centre for Literacy's 2005 Summer Institute: Adult Basic Education & Literacy, Media and Technology.
The references and annotations point to relevant research, project, strategy and evaluation reports that describe and analyze the current and future influences of changing technologies on definitions of literacy, lifelong learning policy, and program-level practice in Canada and internationally.
This list is far from exhaustive, but represents a core set of readings on the topic and offers a solid starting point for more in-depth research.

The readings listed offer a solid starting point for more in-depth research.
Section one contains annotated references (international resources), section two lists annotated websites (international), and section three provides links to provincial programs and policies in Canada.
Pre-School to Adult
Authors: NWT Literacy Council
The NWT Literacy Council published its first bibliography of Aboriginal books in 2006. Since that time many new works have been created by aboriginal authors, illustrators and translators. This second bibliography contains new works as well as other works not included in the first listing. While this bibliography primarily lists books by Canadian authors and illustrators, books written by people outside of Canada that are interesting and relevant to Canadians have also been included.
To make it easier to find the kinds of books you are looking for, the entries have been divided into three age categories: children, young adult and adult. The authors have used a symbol system to indicate whether a northern Aboriginal author, illustrator or translator has been involved with the book or a person with another background.

It includes over 80 citations to print and Web materials available in North America that cover:
1. The links between health status and literacy status
2. How to assess and develop easy-to-read health education materials
3. How to teach health with literacy in mind, and how to teach literacy using health content
4. Background information about the literacy field and "participatory" education methodologies
5. Curricula and materials on a variety of health topics for adults with limited literacy skills
6. Bibliographies and databases of easy-to-read or multilingual health information and brochures
7. Bibliographies and databases of materials, including journal articles, about the connections between health and literacy.

On September 8, 1998, International Literacy Day,The Centre for Literacy, in co-operation with Nursing Staff Development at the Montreal General Hospital, launched an updated Annotated Bibliography on Health, Communication and Literacy and a Travelling Resource Trunk on Health, Communication and Literacy at the Montreal General Hospital, part of the new McGill University Hospital Centre.
Studies show that levels of education and health can be correlated and that communication between clients and health care providers - in both oral and written forms - can make a difference in the quality of care and in the reduction of errors in follow-up and preventive health care. There is a growing body of research supporting these claims. This Bibliography, an updated version of the 1995 bibliography, contains 23 additional annotations on selected articles written after 1995 on the subject of literacy and health, and published in professional health journals.
Annotated listing of resources appropriate for learners with intellectual/developmental challenges
Authors: Richard Lockert
The Saskatchewan Association of Rehabilitation Centres (SARC) Literacy Needs Project was initiated in October 1998 to assess and begin to address the literacy needs of persons with intellectual / developmental (and other) disabilities. The primary objectives of the project were to:
- Assess literacy needs and to identify existing barriers to literacy;
- Research and catalogue appropriate literacy materials and resources;
- Purchase appropriate literacy materials and resources for a modest SARC / SARCAN Literacy Resource Centre collection;
- Promote literacy for persons with disabilities in Saskatchewan;
- Hold literacy presentations to raise awareness and exchange information;
- Plan for future literacy initiatives that SARC may pursue.
