Professors Jamshid Beheshti and Joan Bartlett have received a 2016 SSHRC Insight Development Grant on Towards a Model of Metaliteracy for Academic and Everyday-Life Information Seeking and Use

The goal of the proposed research is to investigate the metaliteracy knowledge and skills of millennials when seeking and using information not only for academia but also for their day-to-day lives.  The metaliteracy construct encompasses the traditional scholarly information as well as alternative digital contents delivered through the Web, social media, wikis, blogs, etc. The target population of the study is the undergraduate students at different stages of their studies and across multiple disciplines.
