Where is search in Information Literacy : A Theoretical Note on Infrastructure and Community of Practice

Sundin, Olof LU (2020) iConference 2020 In Lecture Notes in Computer Science 12051. p.373-379
Abstract
In this conceptual paper theory of infrastructure is combined with one of situated learning, with a focus on search and search engines. The aim of the paper is to make a theoretical contribution to the information literacy research field by discussing theoretical contradictions as well as strengths when combining the two theoretical perspectives. Search engines and their use are part of the contemporary information infrastructure and are a such often not thought of when being used. It is argued that a critical perspective on information literacy in relation to search seems to demand that they are treated as situated and general at the same time. The paper concludes that sociomaterial perspectives on information literacy research offers... (More)
