Information Literacy Toolkit

InfoLit at SU Library

Mission

SU Library’s InfoLit Program strives to empower students, faculty, and staff to become confident information consumers and creators in the dynamic and evolving information landscape.  Through innovative, engaging and collaborative instruction and programming, the SU Library provides all constituencies with the understanding needed to use information critically and ethically in learning and creating new knowledge to attain academic, career, and life goals.


"Information Literacy is …

The set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning."

 

Association of College and Research Libraries, 2019


‚ÄčThe 21st Century Information landscape is an exciting place full of innovative technology and constant connectivity. We are no longer passive consumers of information, but both creators and curators.  While the implications are meaningful, there is no doubt that this information overload can be overwhelming. Information literacy is a skill-set that can enhance lives academically, professionally and personally. 

How to Use this Toolkit

This toolkit aims to provide instructors with resources that will help integrate information literacy concepts into course instruction. This guide is based on the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education which outlines six core learning concepts that help students in academia and beyond. You can explore through the videos, learning objects and class activities.  Feel free to use or adapt any of these resources in your classroom and submit your own appropriate activities.

 

For more information on integrating information literacy into your instruction, contact your liaison librarian.
