Title:Transforming Information Literacy Education: Information Literacy Landscapes
Author(s):Rath, Logan
Subject(s):Information literacy landscapes
Academic librarians
Exploratory study
Practice theory
Social practice
Abstract:This paper presentation discusses the results of a study to understand academic librarians’ understanding of information literacy as a social practice in order to ascertain where they stand in Lloyd’s (2017) midrange model of information literacy. An open-ended questionnaire was distributed to practicing academic librarians. From their answers, selected participants were chosen for follow-up answers. This grounded theory study aims to help LIS educators understand the current understandings of information literacy practitioners in order to bridge the theory to practice gap as well as help pre-service librarians prepare to enter their future communities of practice.
