EasyBib, Project Information Literacy Team Up on Student Research Habits

EasyBib recently collaborated with Project Information Literacy (PIL), a prominent nonprofit research venture, and posted PIL’s latest information literacy survey on  EasyBib's website to explore the research habits of high school and college students during the final weeks of the term.

PIL, a large-scale and collaborative national research initiative, investigates how students from colleges and universities nationwide find information and conduct their research for coursework and in their daily lives.  Since more than 40 million student writers use EasyBib’s citation and research resources annually, it was a natural fit for PIL to post the survey on EasyBib's site, according to Alison Head, PIL’s director and lead researcher and a research fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society. “We were able to survey over 2,000 students at the end of the academic year, which gives us even more useful results,” she says. PIL and EasyBib plan to collaborate on other education- and information literacy-related projects, such as professional development webinars and content creation.

According to Neal Taparia, EasyBib co-founder, “We have been a consistent supporter of PIL, having referenced their reports in our professional development webinars for educators and we’re looking forward to additional collaboration with them in the future–all to help further the cause of information literacy among students.”
