A Survey of Librarian Perceptions of Information Literacy Techniques
Yearwood, Simone L.; Foasberg, Nancy M.; Rosenberg, Kenneth D.

Teaching research competencies and information literacy is an integral part of the academic librarian's role. There has long been debate among librarians over what are the most effective methods of instruction for college students. Library Faculty members at a large urban university system were surveyed to determine their perceptions of the effectiveness of common information literacy instruction techniques. The system includes community and senior colleges, as well as graduate and professional degree granting institutions. This research was undertaken for the purpose of better prioritizing institutional teaching activities in the current academic climate. Survey results show that instructional models giving librarians more time with students, particularly highly-engaged students, are believed to be the most effective.
