Why do you think it is so important to teach information literacy to college students?

When I first came to Ottawa University, I saw how students struggled with writing their papers, and especially with following APA exactly and citing their sources. A few years ago, I learned how colleges were implementing information literacy programs, and collaborating with other faculty and departments to improve student writing...this gave me hope that librarians could aid/support their peers in helping to improve student writing skills.

I would like to hear your comments in relation to my question?


Here are some additional questions to consider


Reflection and Discussion

How did you learn to use libraries for research

Why do you think the Information Literacy Standards from 2000 have changed to become the Framework in 2015

What do you wish you would have known? What do you still want to know?

What do you expect your students to know by the time they get to the College?
