Project Information Literacy (PIL) is a National Research Study by the
Information School, University of Washington. This project aims at
furthering the study of Information Literacy.
PIL Progress Report is released, with the title "Finding Context: What
Today's College Students Say about Conducting Research in the Digital Age".
The Progress Report concludes, "Research seems to be far more difficult to
conduct in the digital age than it did in previous times".
According to Alison J. Head, Ph.D. and Michael B. Eisenberg (Co-directors),
PIL Progress Report shares "some of the perceptions that led to this
conclusion and several of the trends in problem-solving strategies that have
emerged. The findings and analysis presented here should not be viewed as
complete, but rather as part of our ongoing research that will be explored
further and tested more rigorously".
Though this project is US-based, hope it will serve as a reference resource
for Information Literacy initiatives across the Globe.

We write to tell you that the Project <http://projectinfolit.org/progress/>
Information Literacy Progress Report is released and available. Just click
the link and read. (The report is also posted on the PIL Web Site).
The 18-page report presents findings and analysis (so far) from our 2008
fall student discussion groups, held on seven U.S. campuses with 86 college
students. In our data, you may find some things that you already know. But
there may be others, we hope that surprise you and spark your own thoughts
and new ideas. This spring, our research will continue with a large-scale
student survey administered on three U.S. campuses.
So, give it a read when you get the chance. Also, help us spread the word by
sending on this link to anyone you think may be interested.
In the meantime, if you no longer want to receive findings reports about the
study or if you have received this email in duplicate, please let us know.
We will make sure your email address is removed from our database. Many
thanks again for your continued interest and support.
