Establishing discipline-specific information practices for upper-division information literacy instruction

Extending information literacy instruction to the upper-division classes and integrating information literacy directly into the different disciplines allows students to become familiar with the information practices of their chosen fields. The Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education is supportive of integrating information literacy instruction
throughout the undergraduate years (ACRL, 2015). However, before librarians can familiarize students with the information ecosystems and knowledge practices specific to their future professions, research is required to establish what these current information practices are. In this presentation we discuss a framework for carrying out this type of research, which involves interviews, focus groups, and surveys, and how to integrate research findings into information literacy instruction.
