This guide provides resources for integrating information literacy (IL) into Augustana’s curriculum, using concepts from the ACRL's Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education. Augustana’s Librarians have identified key learning outcomes and curated relevant online resources, instruction ideas, and assignments. The guide includes examples that faculty can integrate independently or in collaboration with the librarians in order to meet IL learning outcomes. Ideas can be implemented in individual courses and can be scaffolded throughout programs. We welcome opportunities to meet with faculty to discuss integration of IL in your courses and programs. Please contact a librarian to get started.
