  1. Please can you help me !

    I am doing my dissertation on Information Literacy and my research aim is the following :

    1) Explore impact of information literacy work with young people

    2)To ascertain if information literacy is a contributing factor to young peoples disengagement from Education, Employment or Training.

    I would be grateful if you can please provide me with any information you have on information literacy.

    1. I too am doing my dissertation on information literacy (in the legal sector).
      My advice to you is to firstly do a literature search using either your university catalogue or the LISTA database.
      Secondly, have a search through articles in the Journal of Information Literacy to get an understanding of current debates.
      You may also want to check out reports from the recent LILAC conference in Newcastle.
      Best of luck
