The International Information Literacies Research Network
Information literacy research with varying foci is carried out in many places around the world. The interest of this network is to develop and connect conceptual understandings of information literacy to empirical research in various contexts and related to particular practices.
The network brings together researchers with a shared interest in scholarly research on information literacies, with a focus on social and cultural aspects. The members of the network share the idea that a common platform which can facilitate exchange of experiences, ideas and information is valuable and productive.
The International Information Literacies Research Network will facilitate sustainable discussions and the exchange of information and ideas in order to:
- Develop the interdisciplinary research field of information literacies and its theoretical and methodological foundations
- Explore research relationships across disciplines
- Initiate formalised and informal collaborative research projects
- Enable joint publications
- Arrange and support conferences, seminars, workshops
- Secure the growth of the research field (e.g. PhD courses, connecting PhD students)
