SLJ: Exploring Students’ Decision-Making Processes in Information Literacy

Hi, friends–

I’m rising from the post-dissertation-defense fog (it lasts a while) to share some writing. As I reached the mid-point of my dissertation and really saw what the actor-oriented transfer perspective (AOT) could do for information literacy in higher education, my advisor, Scott McLeod, began wondering what it could do for school libraries.

Our article in School Library Journal appeared earlier this week. For now, it’s viewable free of charge (thanks, SLJ!).

AOT offers structure for exploring students’ decision-making processes as they use information literacy skills on their own. It also allows straightforward gathering of qualitative data, which librarians and teachers can use to support their ideas & their requests for support.

Scott and I are interested in hearing your responses, and in considering potential collaborations. Keep in touch — and thanks for reading!
