The Information-Seeking Habits of In-Service Educators
College & Research Libraries Volume 76, Number 2, ISSN 0010-0870
Research on information literacy and educators has focused on preservice educators and learning information literacy skills. Little research exists on in-service educators and their information literacy skills. Purposes of this study were to identify information sources that in-service educators used; to determine relationships between information sources used and in-service educators' professional position, age groups, experience, and information format preference; and to determine relationships between in-service educators' information-seeking habits and prior library instruction. Results of this study indicated statistically significant relationships between information-seeking habits and prior library instruction. Other statistically significant in relationships were indicated between information-seeking habits and the age groups and current professional positions of sample population.
