A Critical Information Literacy Model: Library Leadership within the Curriculum
Swanson, Troy
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v35 n11 p877-894 2011
It is a time for a new model for teaching students to find, evaluate, and use information by drawing on critical pedagogy theory in the education literature. This critical information literacy model views the information world as a dynamic place where authors create knowledge for many reasons; it seeks to understand students as information users, and emphasizes that information "evaluation" is a continual process during research. This model centers libraries within the curriculum as the experts on overcoming many of the obstacles to conducting successful research in the ever-changing information world. (Contains 3 tables.)
