Information Literacy Showcases
The Information Literacy Initiative at WVU Libraries
The Information Literacy Initiative at WVU began in 2006 to help users at all levels access, evaluate, and use information effectively, in the classroom and beyond. Students and teachers all over the world recognize this symbol as an indicator of the quest to change information into new knowledge and learning.
These videos might be catalysts for chat, discussion threads, or relevant exchange in class preceding a research assignment.
Students Talk about Information Literacy
Project Information Literacy, a research project based at the University of Washington, is exploring what students at seven different institutions of higher education in the United States think and feel about research.
Faculty and Librarian Resources for Information Literacy
The Faculty Toolkit for Information Literacy contains assignment ideas, rubrics, and readings on integrating information literacy into your courses,and an introduction to plagiarism avoidance created by the WVU Psychology Department and others.
Constantly updated to make it useful for you in your teaching and studies, the WVU Libraries website contains valuable information about where to get help with finding, evaluating, and managing information.
Project Information Literacy, a national research initiative discovering how students do research for their classes and personal lives, is making an important contribution to our understanding to students' knowledge about the research process. Their videos are great catalysts for discussion.
