Abstract

Reports on data collected from an on-going Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC)-funded study of information literacy and bibliographic instruction in Canadian academic libraries. The goal of this three-year study is to identify instructional outcomes and characterize successful instruction from the perspectives of the institutions providing that instruction (particularly the librarian- instructors), and the students receiving the instruction. Focuses on the current practices of librarian-instructors on the front lines of bibliographic instruction in Canada, looking at their experiences, goals, instructional methods and challenges in providing information literacy services. Seeks to fill a gap in our understanding of the circumstances and challenges that face librarians at the beginning of the twenty-first century, and the attitudes of those librarians towards bibliographic instruction and the changing role of information literacy in Canadian post-secondary institutions.
