ABSTRACT
In this paper, based on desk research, we will present the most important features of Research 2.0 in its relationship with information literacy (IL). The appearance of the Research 2.0 paradigm was brought about by numerous technological innovations resulting from Web 2.0. This may lead to transformations that could change the principles of research activities. When explaining the nature of Research 2.0 we highlight factors that hinder its wider uptake. We will also try to show that IL is changing in some of its aspects as a result of developments in the Research 2.0 domain, regardless of the fact that it is not widely adopted. The consequences resulting from the analyzed transformations in IL are of utmost importance for academic libraries, the content of their instructional activities and future information literacy conceptualizations.
