Abstract: This article reports the results of an exploratory study using focus group methodology in information literacy research. A small focus group-seven undergraduate students at Concordia University College of Alberta-discussed the concept of information literacy and the role of the undergraduate library in developing information literacy skills. Participants perceived information literacy as valuable, and agreed that the library plays an important role in developing the skill of locating information. Moreover, the focus group method demonstrated potential for generating useful data in this field, particularly hypotheses for further research.
