Information Literacy Instruction (ILI)

What do your students need to know?

We offer online research guides and general (non-subject) guides that teach your students about research resources outside of class-based library sessions.

What do you need to know?

Meaningful library instruction connects information resources relevant to your students’ course work through successful library research assignment design as well as other factors related to successful library instruction.  See our guidelines for library instruction sessions.

Instruction at Armacost Library is based on our teaching philosophy and is based on these information competencies.

 

Information Literacy: A Definition

Information literacy forms the basis for lifelong learning. It is common to all disciplines, to all learning environments, and to all levels of education. It enables learners to master content and extend their investigations, become more self-directed, and assume greater control over their own learning. An information literate individual is able to:

  • Determine the extent of information needed;
  • Access the needed information effectively and efficiently;
  • Evaluate information and its sources critically;
  • Incorporate selected information into one’s knowledge base;
  • Use information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose; and
  • Understand the economic, legal, and social issues surrounding the use, production, and dissemination of information.

Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education.” 

 

First Year Seminar Library Instruction

The overall goal of the First Year Seminar Information Literacy sessions is to introduce students to fundamental library resources and services, and develop students' critical inquiry in the context of our culture of information.  Students will need to form critical habits of mind in relation to information consumption, production, and dissemination and learn about the vast universe of academic and non-academic resources available to them in our library, other libraries, and elsewhere.
