Material type: ArticleArticleDescription: 27-28 str.Other title: Information Literacy Quest. In Search of Graduate Employability [Naslov na engleskom:].Subject(s): 5.04 | employability, graduate employability, information literacy, bibliometric analysis, visual anal ytics | employability, graduate employability, information literacy, bibliometric analysis, visual anal ytics In: European Conference on Information Literacy (5 ; 2017 ; Saint-Malo) str. 27-28Summary: Purpose The goal of this study is to investigate the correlation between graduate employability and information literacy (IL). Previous research (ECIL2016) in investigating employers’ understanding of IL skills and competences has shown lack of communication between employers and the IL field. In order to understand the reasons of this communication gap and develop communication strategies we researched the scientific communication in the employability and IL domains. Methodology In order to identify structure and dynamics of scientific research in the two domains the f ollowing searches were performed on the World of Science database for the period from 1980 - 2016. The study involved conducting:  Bibliometric analyses of scientific publications on topics of employability/graduate employability and IL ;  Visual analysis and comparison of characteristics of publication portfolio of areas of employability and IL ; and,  Co - citation cluster analysis and visualization with accompanied keyword analysis of most used terms of employability /graduate employability domain. Findings Rese arch has shown that the domains of IL and graduate employability are not well connected. Further insights of those two areas is given through identification of research fields, top authors, major contributing universities, and countries. Major authors, jou rnals, and terms were identified and visually analyzed in order to better grasp various aspects of concepts of employability with specific attention to the area of graduate employability. The results of the research provide better understanding of concept of employability and the graduate employability domain enabling IL professionals to focus their research agenda and create more visibility of IL as the prerequisite for employability.
