Information Literacy

Resources and information on incorporating information literacy learning outcomes into your courses.

Introduction to Information Literacy Student Learning Outcomes

The mission of the Library Instruction Program is to, in partnership with faculty/instructors, teach students the essential concepts and skills for college-level research and inquiry and prepare them for life-long learning. These SLOs were designed with the ACRL Information Literacy Framework and the St. Kate’s Liberal Arts Learning Goals of critical & creative inquiry and purposeful lifelong learning in mind. 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?

Information literacy is the ability to find, manage, understand, analyze, critically evaluate, and ethically use information. (modified from “Critical & Creative Inquiry” St. Catherine University Learning Goal)
