Egan Library’s information literacy program contributes to the library’s mission by promoting information literacy throughout the University curriculum and library services, empowering students to critically use and evaluate library and other information resources and to grow as independent critical thinkers and lifelong learners. Information literacy and its concurrent practices and dispositions enable individuals to identify and locate relevant, reliable information in a changing and often overwhelming information environment and are key to students' academic and personal development.

Information literacy, which is one of the Undergraduate Competencies, is the “set of abilities requiring individuals to ‘recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information,’” according to the Association of College and Research Libraries.  The instruction program at Egan Library recently developed Information Literacy Outcomes based on the Framework and aims to address student information literacy skills both in face-to-face and e-Learning environments.

To request instruction

We provide information literacy instruction through several different modes; much of our instruction is course-integrated and taught as part of class visit (in-person or online).  To schedule a class visit, please contact the Librarian Liaison for your School at least two weeks in advance.
