The PIL research report that started it all:
“Assigning Inquiry: How Handouts for Research Assignments Guide Today's College Students,” Alison J. Head and Michael B. Eisenberg, Project Information Literacy Progress Report, University of Washington's Information School, July 13, 2010. A nation-wide study showed that the majority of sample handouts for researach assignments did not adequately guide students to finding and using information. http://projectinfolit.org/
Information Literacy Standards:
"Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education," by Association of College & Research Libraries, a Division of American Library Association, approved on January 18, 2000, at the Midwinter Meeting of the American Library Association in San Antonio, Texas.
"Librarians and teaching faculty certainly have an obligation to encourage good, thorough research...but they also have a responsibility to serve students -- and that means understanding the limitations of library idealism in practice, and acting pragmatically when necessary."
