The Information Literacy Department of the University Libraries empowers students to be confident users and creators of information in a dynamic and continually evolving information landscape. We prepare students to think critically about the information that they encounter and create, in a variety of forms, both within and outside of academia. Our mission also includes facilitating informed access to the University Libraries’ collections and services. We collaborate with faculty members and administrators to shape information literacy instruction for individual courses, programs, and majors. We strive to be innovative leaders in the field. Our underlying goal is to support the information literacy needs of all members of the academic community through classroom and online instruction, research assistance, and campus-wide collaboration.
