Wiley Research Team Awarded BRASS Grant

Claire Wiley, research and instruction librarian, along with her research teammates from American University and New York University Abu Dhabi, were named the 2019 winner of the BRASS Research Grant Award, sponsored by Emerald Publishing. The project is titled, “The Framework in business information literacy: A mixed methods study.”

This grant will support a mixed method study that aims to explore the ways that librarians – specifically those who provide support to business students and faculty – use the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education in their instruction work. The study will include a systematic review, a survey and focus groups, with the goal of identifying best practices and new ideas for teaching as well as increasing the value of the Framework for business librarians.
