Batool, S.H. & Webber, S. (2019). Mapping the state of information literacy education in primary schools: The case of Pakistan. Library & Information Science Research. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.lisr.2019.04.006
I'm afraid it's not open access, but I will blog when there is a copy available in our repository. Syeda carried out case studies investigating information literacy in six primary schools in Lahore, Pakistan, and then carried out a situational analysis setting her findings in the broader socio-cultural context. "Highlights: Information literacy practice in Pakistan primary schools is influenced by political, economic & socio-cultural factors; School children's learning places and attitudes of teachers and librarians impact information literacy practices; Situational analysis found multiple aspects of IL practice situation and identified workable arenas in depth".
