A Blueprint for Progress: Collaborating with Faculty to Integrate Information Literacy into the Curriculum at Purdue University
Macklin, Alexius Smith; Fosmire, Michael
Resource Sharing & Information Networks, v17 n1-2 p43-56 2004
Students coping with the escalating complexities of available electronic resources often demonstrate undesirable behaviors including the inability to identify information needs, uncertainty about selecting information resources, poor evaluation of information sources, and inappropriate use of information for problem solving. To eliminate these obstacles in higher education, librarians and faculty at Purdue University collaborated to integrate the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) core competencies for information literacy directly into course content. This manuscript describes the development of an overt information-centered curriculum and its impact on student learning. (Contains 4 figures.)
