This page provides access to many kinds of resources to make incorporating Information Literacy into your courses, classrooms, and curriculum easier. But remember, if you ever have questions or requests, the librarians are here to help you. These resources and additional information literacy support has been developed based upon faculty input and their recommendations can be found in the Information Literacy Action Plan. You can find a detailed analysis of the the 2020 Information Literacy Intervention Analysis below as well.
Information Literacy Definition
“Information Literacy is the set of integrated abilities encompassing the reflective discovery of information, the understanding of how information is produced and valued, and the use of information in creating new knowledge and participating ethically in communities of learning.”

SLCC Statement on Information Literacy as a Student Learning Outcome
Information literacy is a conceptual framework, collection of competency standards, and a set of abilities, which allow students to find, synthesize, assess, create, engage with, and cite information in a professional and ethical manner. Students will conceive that the research process is reflective and iterative, and they will understand how information is produced and valued. The grounding for information literacy at Salt Lake Community College is rooted in the Framework for Information Literacy developed and adopted by the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL).
