Conceptualizing cultural literacy as a key concept when researching Caribbean cultural groups
Audience: Adults
Description: I discuss the challenges for students in academic social work programs who are faced with the challenge of researching health attitudes of 'hidden' populations. I offer a different way to conceptualize such searches, with an emphasis on taxonomy, ontology, metadata, crosswalks, and disambiguation. The use of these essential concepts helps information seekers to conceptualise successful search strategies, increase relevance and precision in their searches, and be more agile when working with complex topics and new resources.
