Information Literacy

“The ability to identify what information is needed, understand how the information is organized, identify the best sources of information for a given need, locate those sources, evaluate the sources critically, and share that information.”

Factors, Forces, Connections, & Questions

  • Internet, world wide web, and too much information
  • Changing role of the professor when information is so ubiquitous
  • How is information collected and analyzed for research?
  • Liberal Arts are inherently about information literacy.  Liberal arts promote general knowledge and the ability to develop intellectual capacities, such as reasoning, judgment, critical thinking and problem solving.
