Forum on Information Literacy (FOIL)
The Forum on Information Literacy (FOIL) is a researchers' alliance with an interest in groundbreaking and disruptive research into information literacy in all its forms.
The Forum represents a space for academic researchers who are active in the field of information literacy research in the UK, to discuss and challenge ideas, and to engage in critical reflection on theory, practice and praxis oriented research.
FOIL is charged with the following mission:
- Establish and nurture a research environment in which information literacy researchers in UK universities will discuss theoretical and methodological issues related to information literacy.
- Develop and advance a research agenda and programme of works that addresses the theoretical and methodological issues of IL in academic and applied contexts.
- Continue to build a UK centered discussion about IL in national and international contexts, referencing points of agreement with other IL research communities, but also highlighting differences.
