A Collaborative Project to Integrate Information Literacy Skills into an Undergraduate Psychology Course
Birkett, Melissa; Hughes, Amy
Psychology Learning and Teaching, v12 n1 p96-100 Mar 2013
A collaborative project between an academic librarian and faculty member was implemented in an undergraduate psychology course with the goal of integrating specific information literacy learning outcomes relating to students' use of resources. As part of a semester-long, cumulative project, students' annotated bibliography assignments (N = 67), including 510 unique citations, were reviewed to distinguish resource format and type of research (empirical versus non-empirical). Based on the analysis, students used a variety of resources to complete course assignments. Our evaluation suggests that partnerships between academic librarians and faculty members may be beneficial in positively influencing information literacy skills in psychology classes.
