The Making Connections programme focuses on information literacy in school and workplace contexts, as a foundation for lifelong learning, effective problem-solving, decision-making, and resilience in a knowledge society.

Our research focuses on the characteristics, development and impact of information literacies in different contexts.  These include schools, corporate and professional workplace environments (the “Making Connections” programme), as well as Higher Education.  This research has been supported by grants from a wide range of sources including ESRC, SES, Re-source, Scottish Government and ITSN-ICS and is published in peer-reviewed journals in information and education disciplines.
