Librarians and faculty both rate information literacy highly in survey
Unsurprisingly, faculty was less concerned than librarians about communicating (98% of librarians thought communication with faculty could be improved, whilst 45% of faculty thought communication with librarians could be improved). Faculty members seemed to perceive the librarians as having a wider role than the librarians did (e.g. rating text and data mining by librarians more highly than librarians did).
