Transliteracy is The ability to read, write and interact across a range of platforms, tools and media from signing and orality through handwriting, print, TV, radio and film, to digital social networks. (PART 2007) The modern meaning of the term combines literacy with the prefix trans -, which means "across; through", so a transliterate person is one who is literate across multiple media.

Transmedia storytelling (also known as transmedia narrative or multiplatform storytelling ) is the technique of telling a single story or story experience across multiple platforms and formats using current digital technologies, and is not to be confused with traditional cross-platform media franchises , [ 1 ] sequels or adaptations.

In recent weeks, the blogosphere has been abuzz with a flurry of posts debating the value of the term transliteracy in library circles.
Pam Allyn (born January 31, 1963) is an American literacy expert and author .
This year conversation about transliteracy has really taken off amongst North American librarians. Bobbi Newman's work initiated a lot of interest resulting in a great collaborative blog Libraries and Transliteracy and gave rise to many other blog posts and discussions which come through to me almost every day via Google Alerts. Recently Google brought me a discussion on David Rothman's post Commensurable Nonsense (Transliteracy) which starts "It is entirely possible that I’m just dense, but everything I’ve read recently about libraries and “transliteracy” seems like nonsense to me."
Approximately forever ago (that’s March 30 in social media years), I got pretty tired of a certain argument bouncing around the pipes. On the one side, you have the transliteracy early adopters, insisting that transliteracy is a unifying framework covering all types of literacy.
