About the lecture

Professor Limberg will present overall findings from a number of research projects carried out in Swedish primary and secondary schools during the last 25 years. The research has been directed at the interaction between information seeking and learning, linked to issues of information literacy. Main conclusions are that variation in the quality of students’ information seeking and use interacts closely with variation in the quality of their learning outcomes, indicating that information literacy is a critical feature of learning via digital tools and information sources. The lecture will summarise these conclusions and discuss further research that is required.

About the speaker

Louise Limberg is a Senior Professor at the Swedish School of Library and Information Science at the University of Borås, Sweden, and an international leader in the field of information literacy and learning. Her research interests include issues of school and academic librarianship, particularly the pedagogical roles of such libraries. Her research has created a lively interest among practitioners in librarianship and education across Scandinavia. During March 2015 she will be based at Curtin University as an Eminent Visiting Fellow in the Faculty of Humanities.
