Do We Speak the Same Language? A Study of Faculty Perceptions of Information Literacy
Cope, Jonathan; Sanabria, Jesús E.
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v14 n4 p475-501 Oct 2014
The authors analyze twenty in-depth interviews with faculty members about how they perceive information literacy (IL) to examine two key factors: how disciplinary background influences conceptions of IL among faculty members in academic departments and how the instructors' perception of information literacy differs from that of professionals in library and information science. The investigators analyzed these interviews by utilizing a phenomenological method. The faculty members were interviewed at a four-year college, the College of Staten Island, and at a community college, the Bronx Community College, both part of the City University of New York.
