Abstract [en]

Entering at a Master’s level means that the student will encounter a level that is more intellectually demanding and more challenging than before. They need to use information sources in various ways and at this stage it is important that they access research and theory-based literature. A primary sign of quality in good research is that it is founded on well proven sources of theory and previous research, and that it utilizes the proper technique of referencing. In order for the students to acquire sufficient search skills, including how to cite and refer, the library offers information literacy training that is timed to happen at the point of need. This requires that they master the research process being able to pose questions and seek answers, to use and apply techniques and research skills, to analyse data, to review literature and write up results in an academic format appropriate to the discipline. According to Carlson (2006, p15), as student’s progress academically, sources cited should demonstrate students' "growing sophistication and ability to think critically in their chosen discipline." But is this really the case? One way to get a sense of this process is to look at what types of sources the graduate students cite in their theses. This study used citation analysis in order to “mine” reference lists obtained from master theses for assessment purposes. The aim of this study is to investigate what kind of information sources master students use in their theses and the author studied the citation patterns in 36 Master's theses.A total of 2173 references were checked and out of them were 886 (40,7%) journal articles. The students used 479 different journals and 378 of them were peer reviewed. 380 (79,3%) journals were kept by the library. 175 (54,6%) book or book chapters were kept by the library out of the 320 used by the students. They also used other sources such as reports of different kind (11,4%), Web pages (0,6%), Grey literature (0,6%) and conference papers (0,2%) to mention a few. Students used 60 references as an average in their theses.Although the accuracy of the citations was beyond the scope of this study, the author noticed a number of problems such as incomplete citations, inconsistent journal title abbreviations and inconsistent use of citation style formats. The author carried out bibliographic searches in order to rectify any incorrect or incomplete citations and this required extra work to correct, but was also indication that we might alter our information literacy training and emphasise more on citing and referencing.Findings indicate that these graduate students surprisingly seems to prefer scholarly journal articles and books or book chapters. The author had anticipated another picture with more references to the Web. This pilot project provided new and important information about the use of collections by master students. The authors learned that the library’s journal coverage is good enough but that the monographic coverage is somewhat less complete. The author will continue to do another study with new theses from 2013-2014 in order to investigate if our new emphasis on citing and referencing had any impact on the inconsistencies that have been seen in the first study and also if the same pattern of information sources used by earlier students occur.References:[1] Carlson, J.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to highlight the importance of the adjustment of Information Literacy skills training according to the development of new social media and how to prepare current and future generations to live and work in an information and economy-driven society. We would like to present and discuss some ideas on the practice of teaching and learning in the field of Information Literacy by introducing a model suited for higher education and work settings (Lantz & Brage 2006 a; Lantz & Brage 2006 b; Lantz & Brage 2013 a).

Abstract [en]

In 2006 we developed and presented the first version of a model called Applied Information Literacy. The aim of the model was to embed information literacy into research and writing instruction sessions. We tested the model in our information literacy curricula for a couple of years and found it to be too linear. In addition, the information landscape has changed as various forms of social media have become strong players in students’ everyday information world. Therefore there was a need for us to change and simplify our original model, which we present and discuss. According to the students it seems to work well since the new model contributes to their holistic learning resulting in better academic work.

Abstract [en]

University students nowadays have become accustomed to digital resources provided by the academic library. But this normally ends after graduation when they enter the workforce and when they no longer have access to full text journals, research databases and other reference tools. Former students wish to rely upon the same resources they were using during their student days, resources that now are out of reach due to restricted access. To add to this problematic situation there is recognition in the literature that businesses must employ workers who know how to deal with information and use it for both personal and work success. But working life have different information practices for locating information that require a different set of standards for evaluating and effective use of information.

Abstract [en]

Information literacy, the ability to identify, assess, retrieve, evaluate, adapt, organize and communicate information within an iterative context of review and reflection, has been recognized as a critical competency both at universities and in professional work. In higher education information literacy instruction is now being integrated into the academic curriculum and is also now being assessed like other subjects. This paper summarize and discuss how information literacy skills are assessed by librarians and faculty together in two different educational programs at Linköping University and the outcomes of such efforts. The similarities between the two programs, although different approaches, is the importance of tying information literacy assessment methods to leaning outcomes and to prepare students for future professional life.

This article highlights how to promote the management of knowledge for optimal organizational learning through Information Literacy. Information literacy is seen as core competencies to organizational learning. We would like to present our Master's Programme in Technology-Design-Communication and discuss how we through this programme could incorporate Information Literacy into organisations, making the best out of ICT and information seeking skills.

Abstract [en]

This paper outlines the role of information use in society to illustrate the process of developing a learning society as envisaged by the Information Literacy Research Centre which is located within the Linköping University Library. The section on the theoretical framework discusses learning from different pedagogical perspectives, the importance of reality-based scenarios and also proposes a new model, which could be described as an extension of the well known and often cited Kuhlthau's Information Search Process (ISP) model. The successful implementation of this new model, Applied Information Literacy Education, is explored through the outlines of the following courses, Civic and Public Communication - the Citizen in the Information Society, and, Health Promoting Organizations. The paper concludes by reflecting on the theoretical and practical implications of applying the extended Kuhlthau’s model, as practice has shown that this approach is useful for pedagogical developmental work, including curriculum development in general, and specifically for information literacy programmes. This is presented as a necessary step for the promotion of a learning society based on information literacy and as a challenge not just for information literacy educators, but for other educators as well.

Abstract [en]

Information literacy seen from a historic and current perspective. In this paper I will discuss some important milestones in the growth of the concept Information Literacy. In the early years the debate and research were concentrated on information behaviour, information seeking and information use but in the middle of the 1980s, when the Information Literacy Movement started, the perspective changed and the discussions circled more about process, lifelong learning and different literacies.
