Abstract

Le territoire des recherches en Information Literacy (IL) s’est beaucoup enrichi en dix ans. On peut, avec Bruce, y reconnaître cinq dimensions: 1. la localisation sectorielle des recherches; 2. les façons de considérer l’IL; 3. l’objet de la recherche, soit ce qu’il s’agit d’étudier; 4. la méthode de recherche, soit la manière dont on étudie cet objet; 5. l’influence des disciplines. Bruce prévoit en outre qu’à l’avenir, le développement des recherches s’orientera probablement dans cinq directions: extension au-delà du secteur de l’enseignement; prise en compte d’une plus grande variété de contextes culturels; renforcement et consolidation des programmes de recherche; collaboration accrue entre chercheurs; définition des projets en fonction des priorités budgétaires.

[The information literacy (IL) research territory has been maturing over the last decade. As Bruce (2000) suggests, this research territory may be described in term of five dimensions: 1) the sectoral location of the research; 2) ways of seeing IL; 3) what is being investigated – the research object; 4) how the object is being investigated – the research approach; and 5) disciplinary influences. She also suggests likely trajectories for future IL research include: Growth beyond the educational sector; Attention to a wider variety of cultural settings; A firmer more consolidated research agenda; Greater collaboration between researchers; An agenda driven by funding priorities.

This paper reviews the development of IL research in Australia from 2000 through to 2005, and considers future directions. It presents a picture of evolving understanding of IL and a diversification of research contexts and approaches. Although educationally focussed projects predominate, increasing research activity is occurring in workplace and community settings. Interest in different cultural settings is also emerging, with investigations being initiated across cultures and into cultural influences.]
