We will discuss the contrast between student and instructor conceptions of the writing and library research process. On the one hand, we will consider our experience with students seeking help at the Writing Centre and the Reference Desk. On the other, we will describe a project in which we conducted focus groups with York faculty members and reviewed literature on conceptions of these skills and their development. As a prelude to consideration of skills instruction, we will focus on the idea of unpacking the tacit assumptions about academic literacy made by both students and faculty.
