Teaching faculty's perspectives on business information literacyReference Services Review (2006)
Purpose – Effective integration of information literacy skills into the business curriculum requires the development of collaborative partnerships between teaching faculty and librarians. Developing a good partnership requires an understanding of the teaching faculty's perspectives. This paper aims to address these issues.
Design/methodology/approach – A survey was sent to business teaching faculty at California State Universities to determine their expectations in regards to student information literacy skills.
Findings – Writing a report or project that required in-depth research is one of the major expectations. All faculty surveyed expect students to use library research for their assignments.
Originality/value – Business faculty and librarians will be able to use these findings in developing guidelines to integrate information literacy into coursework, assignments and research tools.
