Information Literacy

A research guide discussing information literacy from understanding the research process to thinking critically about information.

Introduction to Information Literacy Student Learning Outcomes

The mission of the Information Literacy Instruction Program is to teach students to critically and ethically engage with information in their academic, professional, and personal lives. Librarians lead and support efforts to integrate information literacy into and throughout the curriculum and student experience through campus-wide partnerships. Information literacy is introduced and reinforced in the classroom and beyond through responsive, student-centered teaching and active learning.

ACRL Information Literacy Framework 

This guide features lesson plans, resources, and other activities to integrate information literacy into your course in addition to library instruction or when library instruction is not possible (such as in an online course).

What is Information Literacy?
