Information literacy in transition

I have been trying to catch up on other people's blogs ... there are some very useful posting on Moira Bent's. One of them is an article available for downloading free (you have to register - free - first).

Ben, M. (2008) "Information Literacy and the Transition from Secondary to Tertiary Education: Measuring Perceptions." Enhancing learning in the social sciences, 1 (1).
Abstract "How people perceive information literacy and how they think others perceive it can affect how they teach and learn. The transition from secondary to tertiary education offers opportunities to develop information literate students. Variations in perceptions of information literacy in schools and universities in the UK and New Zealand are being investigated using phenomenographic techniques. The research focuses on students studying Chemistry or English in their final two years at school and their first year at university, their teachers and library staff."
