An Assessment of the Lasting Effects of a Stand-Alone Information Literacy Course: The Students' Perspective
Daugherty, Alice L.; Russo, Michael F.
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v37 n4 p319-326 Jul 2011
The authors wished to measure the degree to which a library information literacy course establishes a foundation for life-long learning. A web-based survey was administered to 2147 currently-matriculating Louisiana State University students who had taken the one-credit information literacy course, Library and Information Science (LIS) 1001 (Research Methods and Materials). Though the response rate was relatively low, the survey revealed clear evidence that students continue to use the materials and skills taught in the course throughout their college careers for both course work and personal research.
