This guide provides information about library instruction at Augustana and resources for integrating information literacy (IL) into Augustana’s curriculum, using concepts from the Association of College & Research Libraries' Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. According to the Framework, "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."
You can use this guide to:
Augustana's librarians collaborate with faculty to teach students information literacy (IL) concepts. Our IL initiatives are outlined in the Information Literacy Guide. Some possibilities for collaboration include:
