Research About the Big6 and Information Literacy
Project Information Literacy - Project Information Literacy (PIL) is an extensive information literacy research project, based in the University of Washington's Information School. The researchers are Dr. Alison Head and Mike Eisenberg, co-creator of the Big6. The goal of PIL is to understand how early adults conceptualize and operationalize research activities for course work and "everyday life" use and especially how they resolve issues of credibility, authority, relevance, and currency in the digital age.
