Description

Research Made Accessible highlights the role that information literacy educators have in teaching scientific literacy skills at the postsecondary level, providing clear methods for doing so. In addition, the book attempts to start a conversation within the field of library and information science about the need for scientific literacy, both for students and for an informed citizenry. Despite the existence of numerous books that provide practical guidance to library and information professionals seeking to understand and engage in academic research, there is evidence to suggest that research may continue to be a topic where librarians struggle. One possible explanation for this is the lack of books and information sources that provide novice-level guidance for the reading and evaluation of research published in academic journals. This book seeks to fill that gap with the information librarians need to build bridges to their users.
