Shipman, Todd; Bannon, Susan H.; Nunes-Bufford, Kimberly
College & Research Libraries, v76 n2 p120-135 Mar 2015
Research on information literacy and educators has focused on preservice educators and learning information literacy skills. Little research exists on in-service educators and their information literacy skills. Purposes of this study were to identify information sources that in-service educators used; to determine relationships between information sources used and in-service educators' professional position, age groups, experience, and information format preference; and to determine relationships between in-service educators' information-seeking habits and prior library instruction. Results of this study indicated statistically significant relationships between information-seeking habits and prior library instruction. Other statistically significant in relationships were indicated between information-seeking habits and the age groups and current professional positions of sample population.
