Latest publication from CIS - Exploring Methods in Information Literacy Research

The Centre for Information Studies is proud to annouce its latest publication, Exploring Methods in Information Literacy Research.

This book aims to provide an overview of approaches to assist researchers and practitioners to explore ways of undertaking research in the information literacy field. The first chapter provides an introductory overview of research by Dr Kirsty Williamson (author of Research Methods for Students, Academics and Professionals) and this sets the scene for the rest of the chapters where each author explores the key aspects of a specific method and explains how it may be applied in practice.

Renowned information literacy researcher Dr Christine Bruce affirms the usefulness of the book: 'New researchers and early career professionals will appreciate the clarity of
the introductions provided' to each of the methods covered. This book was edited by Suzanne Lipu, Kirsty Williamson & Annemaree Lloyd. Please visit our website for further details regarding this publication and how to order.
