Is Information Literacy Really Complicated???
Dr. Alison Head, co-director of Project Information Literacy, recently participated on a panel sponsored by the Harvard Libraries Strategic Conversation series at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University. The theme of this conversation focused on “Mi(n)ding the Gaps about research, teaching, and learning and today’s Harvard college student”. Dr. Head shared the latest research findings from Project Information Literacy’s on-going national study about college students and their information literacy and research challenges.

Read the latest findings, and let Dr. Head (email@example.com) know what you think…
