Information Literacy

Dear faculty, 

We had the pleasure to offer a Friday Forum last week on information literacy, particularly on the way the Framework for Information Literacy can be applied to our curriculum. 

If you missed the workshop led by Irene Korber and William Cuthbertson, I encourage you to explore these resources:

Starting in Fall 2022, information literacy will be included as one of the 5 outcomes in the GE Program at Chico State, allowing students to: “Demonstrate[s] the abilities to recognize when there is a need for information; to identify, locate, and evaluate information; and to effectively, responsibly, and ethically use and share information for the question at hand.” If you are teaching a course that will incorporate information literacy as a student learning outcome, these resources are truly invaluable! 

I also want to encourage you to reach out to our librarians for the following resources: 

  • One-shot information literacy session 
  • Information literacy workshop series 
  • Integrating information literacy into your assignments 
  • Assigned research appointments 

We hope you will find these tools helpful!
