From the ACRL Blog Feb. 18, by StevenB:

"A new report from an organization that is trying to learn more about what it is like to be a college student in the digital age may provide the sort of information we need. Project Information Literacy is a national research study based in the University of Washington’s Information School. PIL seeks to understand how students conduct research for assignments and everyday needs. A desired outcome is to improve the transfer, teaching, learning and measurement of information literacy competencies."

I'll have a copy of this 18-page report in my library office. Let me know if you'd like me to send it to you.
