Congratulations to Professor Annemaree Lloyd, whose latest book, The Qualitative Landscape of Information Literacy Research, has recently been published by Facet!

The Qualitative Landscape of Information Literacy Research is a landmark publication that will develop and support readers' understanding of how information literacy research and teaching is framed, developed and produced. Written by a leading expert in the field, it introduces and describes the key approaches taken by qualitative researchers, identifying core and specialist methods, techniques and theories. In each chapter, examples will illustrate how theory, types of pedagogical frameworks, methods and tools have been used. Coverage includes:

  • theory and key concepts of information literacy
  • social theory framework and their application to information literacy research
  • exploration of the pedagogical frameworks that inform information literacy
  • a range of qualitative methods that shape information literacy research
