New Research about Student Research Habits

Project Information Literacy's latest research report just released. Here's what the authors Mike Eisenberg & Alison Head say about it:

"In "Lessons Learned: How College Students Find Information in the Digital Age," we present findings from our student survey, administered last spring to students (n=2,318) enrolled at six U.S. college campuses (42 pages, PDF, 3 MB).
We were struck by what we found. We hope that our findings will help inform educators, such as yourself, about today's college students and how they look for information and conduct research for course-related work and in their everyday lives."

The project web site also includes videos with student commentary on their research process.
