Theoretical Foundations for Information Literacy : a Plan for Action

Budd, John; Elmborg, James; Lloyd, Annemaree and Sundin, Olof LU (2014) Annual Meeting of The Association for Information Science & Technology In Proceedings of the Association for Information Science and Technology 51. p.1-4
Abstract
Information literacy is both a common and an important learning activity with higher education. That said, it is under-theorized as a process and as a path to a product. In order to meet the need for theory, the four panelists will offer four distinct possibilities for theoretical frameworks. While the four frameworks are able to stand alone, there is also the likelihood that they might be melded together in order to form an even richer and more robust underpinning for the work of information literacy and instruction. This panel fills a need that has heretofore been found wanting in the topic.
