TL;DR: The idea of information literacy, broadly defined as the ability to recognise information needs and identify, evaluate and use information effectively, has been of growing concern in the education sectors for a number of years; whilst in the workplace, employers and managers have perhaps attended more to the need for computer and information technology skill as discussed by the authors.

TL;DR: A model, Six Frames for Information Literacy Education, is proposed as a tool for analysing, interpreting and understanding these challenges; and the relational frame is explained in more detail.
Abstract: Information literacy educators are daily challenged by an environment in which colleagues and students bring very different perspectives to curriculum design, teaching and learning, and by the need to apply theories of learning to information literacy education in coherent ways. The purpose of this paper is to propose a model, Six Frames for Information Literacy Education, as a tool for analysing, interpreting and understanding these challenges; and to explain the relational frame in more detail. In the first part of this paper we provide an overview of the different ways in which teaching, learning, and information literacy may be approached. We also introduce the Six Frames for information literacy education. In the second part, we explore some challenges and techniques of applying the relational frame for information literacy education in more detail. Finally, we suggest some ways in which using the six frames may assist practice.

TL;DR: The Seven faces of information literacy as discussed by the authors examines the varying experience of the information literacy amongst higher educators and proposes a relational model of information education as an alternative to the behavioural model that dominates information literacy education and research.
Abstract: The Seven faces of information literacy examines the varying experience of information literacy amongst higher educators and proposes a relational model of information literacy as an alternative to the behavioural model that dominates information literacy education and research. The metaphor of an information literacy wheel is used to examine problems associated with the behavioural model and to propose the adoption of a relational approach. Details of an empirical study into information users' conceptions of information literacy follows. The study was conducted to form an initial hub for the relational information literacy wheel - a detailed picture of the different ways in which information literacy is experienced amongst a group of experienced information users - in this case higher educators. The resulting conceptions, represented by 'categories' describing them, provide a picture of the phenomenon of information literacy... This picture becomes the centerpiece of the relational information literacy wheel in the same way that lists of attributes are central to the behavioural model.

TL;DR: Phenomenography is a qualitative research approach that seeks to explore variation in how people experience various aspects of their world as discussed by the authors, and has been used in numerous information research studies that have explored various phenomena of interest in the library and information sphere.
Abstract: Phenomenography is a qualitative research approach that seeks to explore variation in how people experience various aspects of their world. Phenomenography has been used in numerous information research studies that have explored various phenomena of interest in the library and information sphere. This paper provides an overview of the phenomenographic method and discusses key assumptions that underlie this approach to research. Aspects including data collection, data analysis and the outcomes of phenomenographic research are also detailed. The paper concludes with an illustration of how phenomenography was used in research to investigate students’ experiences of web-based information searching. The results of this research demonstrate how phenomenography can reveal variation, making it possible to develop greater understanding of the phenomenon as it was experienced, and to draw upon these experiences to improve and enhance current practice.

TL;DR: In this article, Nonaka and Takeuchi argue that Japanese firms are successful precisely because they are innovative, because they create new knowledge and use it to produce successful products and technologies, and they reveal how Japanese companies translate tacit to explicit knowledge.
Abstract: How has Japan become a major economic power, a world leader in the automotive and electronics industries? What is the secret of their success? The consensus has been that, though the Japanese are not particularly innovative, they are exceptionally skilful at imitation, at improving products that already exist. But now two leading Japanese business experts, Ikujiro Nonaka and Hiro Takeuchi, turn this conventional wisdom on its head: Japanese firms are successful, they contend, precisely because they are innovative, because they create new knowledge and use it to produce successful products and technologies. Examining case studies drawn from such firms as Honda, Canon, Matsushita, NEC, 3M, GE, and the U.S. Marines, this book reveals how Japanese companies translate tacit to explicit knowledge and use it to produce new processes, products, and services.
