The CILIP Information Literacy Group is now able to provide funds of up to £10,000 for high quality research through an annual bursary scheme.
Research into the effectiveness of information literacy has been published fairly widely, but there are pockets of IL research that have either not taken place at all or have not reached beyond the academic domain. These areas include research in the third sector, various aspects of the workplace, citizenship, and more.
The IL Group would like to help to fill some of those gaps and are therefore seeking imaginative proposals that have the potential for high impact beyond HE and librarianship.
Please note that the principal investigator (the person who leads the research) must be a member of the CILIP Information Literacy Group.
