    Abstract

    The aim of this chapter is to introduce practitioners to a grounded theory approach which I employed in my own doctoral studies. This study focused on exploring the meaning of information literacy in a specific workplace – a fire station. This chapter in not intended to be a ‘how to’ guide’ which you need to follow slavishly, but to introduce you to the basic strategies and issues found in a grounded theory approach and to illustrate the elements by describing my own research. At the end of the chapter you will find a list of readings which you should explore before deciding on this method for your research.
