Academic Senate for California Community Colleges, Sacramento.
In this paper the Academic Senate of the California Community Colleges addresses information competency and the need to expand students' information-gathering skills beyond that typically implemented at the present time in the curriculum of the California Community Colleges. Information competency is defined as the ability to find, evaluate, use and communicate information in all its various formats. Issues facing the California Community College faculty as they explore ways to provide information competency skills to students are examined. The paper also includes a list of key skills student require in order to find, evaluate, use, and communicate information, and provides models of implementation describing how information competency will be implemented in the California Community Colleges. In conclusion, the paper emphasizes the primary responsibility faculty have in determining curriculum and developing a program for information competency on college campuses. (AS)
