MLIS Research Project Presentation Monday April 20, 2015

On Monday, April 20, 2015, the MLIS community is invited to hear 2014 FLDS Award winner Amanda Pruka, along with MLIS faculty member Dr. Sook Lim present on their collaborative research project on information literacy among community college students. Their talk is scheduled from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in Room 017, CdC.

In their presentation, they will present what they learned regarding: What do college students think about their own skills in information literacy? Do they value credible and quality research? Are they overestimating their abilities to conduct research and use it effectively?

The FLDS Award provides funding to support an MLIS student and faculty member to conduct collaborative research.
