Project Information Literacy, a national research study, is looking for humanities and social science majors (sophomores, juniors, and seniors), who are in their 20s and enrolled full-time at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), to voluntarily participate in one of two discussion groups they will be holding on the UIUC campus on Thursday, November 6, 2008. The study is about how U.S. college students conduct research for course assignments and in their "everyday life."
Two 90-minute sessions will be held in the Undergraduate Library on campus (Room 295) at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Thursday, November 6. Each participant will be given a $15 iTunes card at the completion of the discussion group as a thank-you for their time.
Interested students can sign up at http://projectinfolit.org/4signup. Project Information Literacy is based in University of Washington's iSchool and led by Drs. Alison Head and Michael Eisenberg.
