Preparing Students to be Information-literate Citizens

Our goal is to prepare students to be information literate citizens who will become critical thinkers and lifelong learners. We define information literacy as the “ability to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information” ACRL, 2000.  Our students will attain critical thinking and information literacy skills by the following:

  • promotion of the use of  print and electronic resources
  • partnering with the faculty in integrating the information literacy in individual courses and academic programs
  • providing instruction to individuals, groups and classes in formal and informal settings, face-to-face or electronically where classes meet
  • focusing on the learning outcomes to gauge our effectiveness and continuous review and renewal of our skills and programs
