The author analyzed survey responses from fifteen adjunct faculty members teaching in applied graduate programs to examine the language they used to discuss information literacy in conjunction with their own research and the teaching of graduate college students. The adjuncts are industry professionals, experts in their respective fields. The college, Goucher College, is a small private liberal arts college established in 1885, in the state of Maryland. Three research questions guided the work - how do faculty come to understand information literacy, what language do they use to describe it, and how do they transfer this knowledge to their students.
