The Information Literacy in User Education (English)
Abstract [en]

This master thesis investigates the user education. Christine Bruce has presented a theory of information literacy in her research which has resulted in seven different aspects of information literacy. In this study I wanted to investigate what aspects there were and what they looked like in a practical educational situation. The methods used for this study were observation and a questionnaire. I analysed the observations by using Bruces aspects of information literacy to group the observed activities into the different aspects. Four different groups of students were observed and the questionnaire was answered by three of these groups. I found that the information source aspect was the dominating aspect of information literacy in all four observed groups. This aspect revealed itself mostly when the librarians talked about and showed relevant databases. The information technology aspect, the process aspect and the aspect of controlling information could also be found. I found very little of the aspects of information literacy that deal with information use. There was a little difference in the picture of information literacy between the four observed groups of students. The information technology aspect and the aspect of controlling information could not be observed in one group and the aspects that deal with information use could be observed in only one group of students.
