Research Is an Activity and a Subject of Study: A Proposed Metaconcept and Its Practical Application
Hosier, Allison
College & Research Libraries, v80 n1 p44-59 Jan 2019
Information literacy instruction based on the ACRL "Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education" tends to focus on basic research skills. However, research is not just a skill but also a subject of study. The ACRL "Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education" opens the door to integrating the study of research into information literacy instruction via its acknowledgement of the contextual nature of research. This article introduces the metaconcept that research is both an activity and a subject of study. The application of this metaconcept in core LIS literature is discussed and a model for incorporating the study of research into information literacy instruction is suggested.
