Findings – Writing a report or project that required in‐depth research is one of the major expectations. All faculty surveyed expect students to use library research for their assignments. Originality/value – Business faculty and librarians will be able to use these findings in developing guidelines to integrate information literacy into coursework, assignments and research tools.
