Abstract
As traditional bibliographic instruction has evolved into information literacy, identifying how have faculty and staff in higher education perceive their students’ research skills requires more than quantitative survey data. Effective program planning for library instruction can benefit from a qualitative investigation and can be accomplished without significant resources. This report will illustrate how, following in the tradition established by Christine Bruce in The Seven Faces of Information Literacy, the San Jose State University Library undertook a phenomenographic investigation of information literacy to inform the strategic directions of its instruction program.
