The aim of this Bachelor thesis is to examine and understand how teachers of younger children teach information literacy and also what part the school library and the school librarian take in this process.
I have, in the study, used parts of Limberg & Folkesson´s IDOL project as my theoretical framework and the material was collected through qualitative interviews with four teachers. My result of this study indicates that many teachers have a vague idea of what information literacy is. My study also indicates that teachers only teach information literacy occasionally. This despite the new curriculum (Lgr11) which clearly indicates that information literacy is a priority. Some of the teachers express an opinion that the students, for example; in their source critical ability, develop this skill with age. The older they get the more developed their skills become. This might be one of the reasons why the teachers don’t experience that they teach information literacy so often.
My conclusion is that the teachers need further education in both information literacy and how to teach their students in this subject. Another solution is also that the co-operation between the teachers and the school librarian increase. This would help the student to increase his or hers ability to reach their academic goals, to gain experience and develop their skill of information literacy to become a full member of the society.
