Project Information Literacy

While surfing the other day, I stumbled upon an information literacy site I had not seen before. It is Project Information Literacy.

Here are some details taken from the site:

Project Information Literacy is national research project, based in the University of Washington's Information School. We are currently collecting data from early adults enrolled in community colleges, pubic colleges and universities, and private colleges and universities in the U.S.

Our goal is to understand how early adults conceptualize and operationalize research activities for course work and "everyday use" and especially how they resolve issues of credibility, authority, relevance, and currency in the digital age.

I wish the researcher luck and hope they help to produce a better understanding of information literacy issues.
