IL at school and work

Herring, J.E. (2011). "From school to work and from work to school: information environments and transferring information literacy practices" Information Research, 16(2). "This study, based in a Scottish secondary school, aimed to examine the views of students who were completing work experience, on their information literacy practices, and the differences they found between the school and workplace information environments while on work experience. The views of guidance teachers were also explored." An interesting paper.
Other papers in this latest issue of Information Research include:
Peta Wellstead "Information behaviour of Australian men experiencing stressful life events: the role of social networks and confidants"
Vivienne Waller "The search queries that took Australian Internet users to Wikipedia"
Helaiel Almutairi "Factors affecting the information behaviour of managers in the Kuwaiti civil service: a relational model"
