Library Toolbox for Faculty

Ideas for helping students navigate the information ecosystem


Dear Faculty,

This guide provides ideas you can use to infuse your courses with small, well-placed doses of information literacy instruction.

As an expert in finding and using information in your field, you employ all kinds of strategies to find, evaluate, and use information. And there's a good chance you use those strategies without even thinking about them.

Here you'll find ideas to make some of those strategies more visible and transparent to your students and to help them navigate the wildly complicated information ecosystem.  

For some more background visit The Framework for Information Literacy in Higher Education tab.
