A Campus-Wide Role for an Information Literacy Committee
Jacobson, Trudi E.; Germain, Carol Anne
Resource Sharing & Information Networks, v17 n1-2 p111-121 2004
The current Middle States Commission on Higher Education accreditation guidelines suggest an enhanced role for faculty members in information literacy instruction. A campus-wide information literacy committee can play a key role in accomplishing this. Such a committee at the University at Albany, SUNY, has been critical in addressing this recommendation, and in advancing a general education information literacy requirement. The committee serves as a source of information and as an organizer of workshops for faculty members who would like to tailor their courses to fit the general education information literacy requirement. It also serves as a syllabus review body and advocates for collaboration with librarians in this distributed model of information literacy instruction.
